Should You Remove Your Grass Entirely?

It's best to remove grassy lawn entirely in the following situations:

  • Where surface roots intefere with mowing
  • Where low hanging trees or shrub branches intefere with the mower or require 'stooping'
  • Where the ground slopes so much that moving the mower is difficult
  • Where many specimen trees and shrubs grow in the lawn, making for extra work and time to trim around trunks
  • Under or bordering a fence
  • where access is difficult

As we continue with The Weekend Gardener's main chores, namely the lawn, we will next look at lawns in shade.
