tearing up the lawn and planting shrubs etc.
I have a very steep and pretty large front yard and it gives me fits to try to mow the grass (who am I kidding, its mostly nutsedge, dandilions and clover at this point). Anyway, I'm thinking about just tearing up all the grass and putting in shrubs and ground cover. My wife wants it to look like an 'English Garden', but the way she describes it to me it sounds like it will look just like it does now with plants instead of grass - unkempt! Anybody know a site I can go to to get some ideas for choosing and laying out plants for my area? (Atlanta) Any advice for planting on a steep slope?
