Why not have grass just around the house and leave the rest natural with some minimal upkeep here and there? I know a big lot that's groomed looks great but as you mentioned that's a lot of work and expensive to keep up.Yeah, that's why I mentioned that we typically have smaller lots up here. My lawn mowing runs about $50 a week, but I only have a 1/2 acre lot. I certainly wouldn't want to pay $725 a week for mowing.
Dang brother. That's a beautiful house. Just looked at the listing for it, love it. We've been in the hunt for a house like that here but it is next to impossible since 99% of this place is swamp
For some strange reason, when I had rock out front for landscaping, with thick weed-block material, I got way more weeks than when I switched to mulch (also with weed-block material).I didnt do a huge area and rock still cost me a ton but I there's no way in hell I was messing with mulch. Im just disappointed how many weeds still upgrowing despite weed cloth etc...
That kitchen is huge and nicely done! My wife would love it. Heck, I would love it. But that basement.....OMG!
