Have you tried…Going Wild?

No, not really you but a small piece of your lawn. This is the time of year when the sound of the mower fills the suburban air. But hold back that mower for 5 minutes while you mark out a small section of your lawn that you designate will not be mowed this year at all! It can be as small as one square foot. It might be interesting to set aside 2 or 3 areas in different places in your lawn. Those skinny green garden stakes can ‘stake’ your claim.

Watch what happens in your growing mini-jungle throughout the next four seasons. Who will start living there? How tall will your grass grow? What happens at the top of it? Invite friends over for a mini-safari through your wild patch of Earth.
