Theory: The taller the weeds are, the less you have to bend over to pull them out.

I wish I could say this is a picture I got from googling "disturbing backyard overgrowth," but this actually is OUR backyard. It's okay though because I'm headed to the Utah Water Conservancy Gardens to get some tips on resurrecting our soil, planting something pretty, and helping it survive the winter.

Wish me luck.

I went ahead and googled "disturbing backyard overgrowth." They got nothing on us.

Looks like there's lots of potential in your backyard. :) That's awesome you're implementing water-savvy methods. Good luck, lady and I can't wait to see the finished product!

I hate to say it, but you've got nothing on our backyard. Multiply that picture by abouta hundred, and that's what we're dealing with. Let me know when you find out how to get rid of those bad boys...

Good luck in your search! At least the size of your backyard seems manageable. Weeding and re-planting all the space in my yard is waay too intimidating. Maybe next season. :)

kimi: Well that's the hope--though I'm half expecting them to say, excuse me? You're want to plant something now and expect it to live? (It snowed today...)

Kristen: hahah! I think we need to see some pictures. I hear that a bag of weed&feed does miracles. We'll see.

Shan: Agreed. Ours is a tiny plot mostly covered in brick--and we're taking it one square foot at a time.
