I have been known to clean up the local park of fallen branches, palm fronds and tree limbs. These get mulched and put into the garden. Sometimes I have assistance in the matter. Sometimes I go on alone. I figure it saves the council workers from having to do it before they mow the grass and often on weekends a branch can be laying there for the whole weekend. Some are quite a decent size too. Once removed, the grass looks nice and kept again.
Unlike our front ‘lawn’.
Our front lawn is practical. It gets parked on by visitors, used for adding green matter to the compost bin and is not solely comprised of lawn at all.
It has remained as it is for decades, so I’m not in a rush to change it when the back area needs a make-over for several compelling reasons. In the meantime, I get to watch what happens during the really big wet weather events and during the hot, late summer days. Perhaps over time I will hatch a plan.
