Lawn & Garden

Inexpensive lawn

We live in northwest Georgia with our house built into the side of a hill.  Our front yard has about a 45 degree slope and is mostly weeds.  I know the proper process would be to install a sprinkler system and sod, but our finances prevent that at this time.  What is an affordable alternative to an attractive front yard?

Hello jlaiskonis,


Why not plan for some large perennial flower beds?

Use a spray weed and feed on your existing lawn, maybe you can live with it just re-seeded after the weeds are killed.


For your large beds you can use groundcovers to extend them you can use juniper or flowers; sedum, thyme or pholx, this may help by not costing as much to water if you use drought-tolerant natives.
