I decided to reduce how much lawn grass I have in my yard -- it's lots of effort to mow, plus mowing causes lots of noise and air pollution from the silly lawnmower. I figure, why not go with a native groundcover as a replacement?
The back part of my yard has a lot of creeping charlie growing there naturally. Charlie is the member of the mint family that tolerates cutting by lawnmowers and grows where there's not quite enough sun for a full flush lawn

I figure, why not let the creeping charlie take over that part of the lawn?
So what I'm wondering is how I go about this. I thinking that I will not mow that area, then as it gets taller, I'll try pulling out the remaining grass.
Any suggestions? Thanks.
