Getting rid of my grass

Posted by jbander none (My Page) on

I'm planning on covering 400 square feet of my back yard that I can't mow anymore.Ashma. With Dewitt weed block and then plant some spreading yew or spreading arborvitae by cutting through the weed block , this is my latest thought on getting rid of my grass in the back yard. Any ideas on this?

RE: Getting rid of my grass

We don't know where you live to know what ground covers will work. If you lived in Texas I would suggest not using a weed block but cutting the grass out with a power rake. Then plant Asiatic jasmine. It is a low growing, spreading, ground cover with fragrant flowers in the late spring.
