Now back in Utah, I have taken on the challenge of the yard. If Arizona can have low maintenance landscaping, why must Utah be such HIGH maintenance? I guess it's because you only have to deal with it for 6 months of the year. IMHO, This is the one and only advantage of the winter snow, ice and cold temperatures here.
One area that has always needed attention is the area by the sidewalk on the side of the house. Others who have tackled this challenge in years past (Suzy?) will agree, this is not an easy task. This has been my project for the past few days.
Notice weeds choking the sidewalk.
Where you see dirt in this picture, was previously all weeds,
the full length of the fence.
Also, a few years ago I planted some wildflowers by the side of the driveway. They are really pretty this time of year, but no one sees them, so I thought I'd just include them here. Does anyone know the name of the tall orange flowers?
