Here’s a yard we all aspire to: It’s pretty year-round and requires next to no work. Not your traditional landscape (there’s
no lawn), this curbside eye-catcher has passersby hitting the brakes and strollers slowing their pace.
Homeowner Andy McKinnon couldn’t be happier. “I enjoy cocktails on the porch with neighbors, and people are always stopping to ask about the mondo grass.” Occasionally Andy pulls a weed or two, and that’s about it. To keep even that in check, each February and May the yard is treated with a pre-emergence herbicide.
