Just bought a house on flat lot.
I'd greatly appreciate any ideas anyone has on how I might beautify this awful yard.
The former owners did nothing to help the grass and, with watering restrictions in
the summer, it was left to dry out.
I want to get rid of as much of the lawn as possible without it looking like a rock quarry.
I was thinking of having river stones up to the front 3 trees with a curved border.
Then putting in some kind of patio in the front (?) while putting in sod on what's left.
The back of the house has a big patio, but still with the awful grass.
Any ideas? Thanks so much.
