    Clovers look nice the only problem is that they draw bees like mad; a problem for someone who likes to walk outside barefoot. I have to say though that I love the look of moss lawns. Definitely something I will look into the future for my yard.
    Trying to rebuild. Feel free to PM me with questions.

    Dandelions are half the reason the grass has to go... They only survive because I have to water the grass all the time. Without the wet and the cover they'd die off midsummer. Besides which, dandelions are like slug refugee camps.

    Hey nothing wrong with a moss lawn, out here in the middle of the woods our small yard around the house is all moss and it looks AWSOME, less mowing, less weeds other than the occasinal wild flower, trilliums ect.ect but it mainly stays weed free and theres several diffrent types mosses all growing thruout the back yard. The best part about it is its easy on the bare feet. And theres no need for fertalizing it. It has been dandelion free for over 10 yrs but this yr i noticed a few. Each yr it grows further and further across the yard and a pretty good rate. I will snap some pics of it tomarrow and get um posted and also snap up close pics of the moss itself. The rest of our property is totaly woods and hills. Whats nice is always have a supply of fresh moss for my tarantula tanks and also for other terrariums and such when needed.

    Seriously, though, it's not that I dislike dandelions or other similar weeds. It's just that they tend to indicate an unhealthy or imbalanced ecology in your yard/garden/whatever.

    PS - I wish my landlord saw things your way, Barracuda.
