Flowers, not grass

My day lilies are doing nicely this year. It make me think that I should follow the lead of some of my neighbours — put in flowers and other decorative plants and rip up my front yard grass.

I envision a pavement stone walkway curving around the front yard with lots of hostas filling in the open spaces — at least, in the early years.

Flowers are so inviting. I mean who stops to smell the grass?

We have a small front yard and that's basically what we did... no grass. See photo:

It has worked out for us. No grass, less maintenance than a lawn and no chemical treatments!

On top that, can you imagine how much fun it will be for the "young one"! :)
