My Auntie’s yard was, at one time, impeccable. The flowers were everywhere. The lawn, cut with a reel mower, was short cropped and flawless. That was then and now it is the ‘get to it eventually’ location.
The yard cleanup has nothing, at first blush, to do with all the prep that is needed in the house. But, letting the yard go will add stress down the road. Like losing ground (yard) in the cleanup battle. I need to make a dent on it to keep my mental balance in this process. I will pull, cut, whack and nuke it to regain (a sense) control.
