My article in Fine Gardening finally arrived, so here’s a teaser photo.
In the article, I cover a bunch of options for replacing turfgrass with similar-but-easier short groundcovers. Like? Thyme, mazus, creeping Jenny (where it can be contained), dwarf cinquefoil, Sedum acre, and good old Dutch white clover.
I posted an overview of the backyard transformation to Sedum acre and clover right here, with before, during and after shots, and wide views from the deck. And on the right is another view of the same garden, just how it’ll look in a couple of months when 3 feet of snow is a distant memory. Cannot come soon enough.
