weedsI’ve got one spot in the yard that is really a problem and I don’t know what to do about it.  It’s in the front yard, and that makes it even worse.  You know the whole curb appeal thing.  Anyway, it is the strip of ground between the street and sidewalk.

Over the years I’ve seen our neighbors fill the strip with bark, brick, and concrete.  Some of left just left the weed infested grass and others have done a combination of flower beds and grass.  What ever I decide to do I know there will have to be some type of stepping stones or plants that can be stepped on.  Other wise there will be no way to get into a car parked in the street.

I really what to do something with the strip this summer.  About 6 years ago we pulled out the weed infested grass and since then I’ve tried various flowers but none seem to do to well.  Not to mention that there are still plenty of weeds.  I know the first step needs to be soil amendment, but then what?  If you’ve got an idea PLEASE share it with me.
