Incredibly Inventive


This is an incredibly inventive way to avoid cutting the grass on a sloping lawn!






This is a much smaller rock on the boulevard.

  1. Oh wow. those are some giant rocks. I hope they have a good strong wall holding them back.

  2. I hope it works. Those of us who have lived amongst desert landscaping know too well how weeds and grass have a way of creeping through the smallest areas looking for the sun.

  3. Wow!! Not sure if I feel a harmony there, but it is fascinating. In Maine, there are rock beaches like this. One such beach is called Boom Beach, referring the the sound the waves make crashing on those rocks.

  4. Kathy is so right. I can picture all kinds of weeds finding their way around those rocks.

  5. I want to put gravel in my front yard so it doesn't need to be watered or mowed. This summer it turned to dirt yellow because of our drought - I had visions of it self-igniting some days.

  6. My eldest daughter has a house at the foot of the main dyke on the inside. She has a garden on the sloping side of the dyke, which needs a lot of attention. Your post is interesting. Thanks for your visit!

  7. That is very innovative. Nice catch.

  8. Well I guess that is a drought solution for the garden.
    It's a bit Imposing for my taste though.

  9. I was going to say something similar to what Kathy wrote. ;)

  10. It must have something strong underneath to resist weeds that want to grow up between the rocks. We have a few people in our neighborhood who have created rock lawns, but the rocks are very small. I think it will all come to that eventually, as water becomes more and more scarce.

  13. I would prefer a hillside of wildflowers.

  14. LOL! Although knowing weeds and grass, nothing is going to stop them.

    Have a nice day!

  23. This is a popular look in drought stricken So Cal these days!

  24. Wow. That much volume of big rocks like that has got to be pricey. And unless they have a layer of concrete under them it looks like a heck of a place to move around on to pull weeds.

  25. In can understand the reason for this...but I prefer grass. Funny that I feel this way since my yard here in the Rockies....is rocks.

  26. I've seen gravel lawns but these rocks are bigger.

  27. Must really damage the mower blades....
