Frogfruit “lawn” Report @ 2.5 months
The frogfruit “lawn” I plugged 2.5 months ago, turned out to be a frogfruit and horseherb “lawn.” Thanks to all the rains this spring, we have complete coverage already! Weeds are a problem, hence both the frogfruit and horseherb (among a few others).
Pros (as I currently see them):
-I have a solid groundcover to prevent erosion, shade the earth, attract wildlife…
-My kids love running in it.
-I have a large green negative space to allow your eyes to rest and make the surrounding gardens “pop”
-This area requires very little water, if any…I have not watered it in the last 2 months at all, BUT we have had a lot of rain.
-This area needs to be mowed rarely, and only when I want a more “polished” look. Oh, and I use our old reel mower, which surprised me works well on it!
Cons (as I currently see them):
-URGH! I did not think about the fact I would have other noxious seedy weeds and the seeds get tracked on my granite patios.
-I am just not sold on the look yet.
I will continue to keep y’all updated. I plan to use corn gluten and mow to discourage the nasty weeds and keep the ones I want. I am not sure if the frogfruit will win the battle, but I hope so…
What do y’all think???? …suggestions welcome!
