I have battled my yard every year since we moved in here. I keep saying I am going to admit defeat, but I'm too stubborn. I want a yard that looks good, that we can play in, and I can plant my flowers and veggies in. I've lost about every battle so far. I even tried adding wood ash from our fireplace into one of the planting areas, hoping it would build up that sandy soil, but it never helped. (If anything, I think this time it simply made it worse. Ouch!) I've peeked into the neighbors yards, and no one else seems to have this problem - maybe the opposite problem, because one of the neighbor's yards always looks like a jungle.
My last possible plan of attack is to maybe get some grass seeds and see if I can at least get some greenery growing on the back half of the yard. Asking DH to help me in the yard sometimes is like pulling teeth though, so when I read about the Scotts® Snap® Spreader System, I thought it was pretty neat - especially for those of us who can't lift heavy items and carry a bag of grass seeds around a big yard. The Scotts ® Snap® Spreader System is a no mess, no guess spreader system that looks a little bit like a stroller system - you simply push it around your yard, no awkward carrying of other systems necessary.
At the cost of grass seeds and systems like the Scotts ® Snap® Spreader System, I was glad to hear that you don't have to worry about spilling or waste of the seeds - the Snap Pac connects directly to the Snap Spreader, so no cutting, no opening and no pouring from heavy bags! The system auto-sets the proper flow rate - talk about easy! It even has a unique EdgeGuard feature that keeps product where you want it - on the lawn, not on your pathways or sidewalks. When you’re done, the Snap Pac self-seals upon removal making it easy to store - no worries about grass seeds everywhere that could attract critters you don't want in your shed or garage! Sounds like it might be a good solution, right?
My yard looks like this in a lot of places:
The only place that's green and pretty, is about a six foot radius around my beloved apple tree. I'd really like the yard to look nicer, not only for our benefit, but for when we go to sell our house. That yard is one of our best selling points, so it better look like it! lol
