Advice from the Owner
The grass in this yard always struggled from inconsistent watering and the shade from the silver maple. Covering the grass with cardboard was an easy way to begin to remove the grass, and covering the cardboard with landscape cloth and mulch made the area look much nicer while we waited for the grass to die (and stopped the cardboard from blowing away during spring storms).Back to Inspiration Hub
