I have spotted my neighbor on many occasions scanning his perfect front lawn and plucking out any offending non-grass plants that dared set root. That’s not us.
We tried once. We had a brand new lawn put in the front and we tried to keep on top of the weeds. Then we got tired. Then the drought hit and we just gave up altogether. It’s gone now and replaced with a wide variety of drought tolerant plants. However, the back lawn is still with us (and I use the word “lawn” rather lightly).
The back yard has been heavily altered from when we first moved in and several areas that had been buried under overgrown shrubs and ivy got cleared out and opened up. What that really means is that we let the Bermuda grass weeds fill in. We’ve dragged clippings from plants over it to put in the compost pile which means it has been freely seeded with a whole host of other plants. Meh. It all gets mowed occasionally. It works.
