Mona: I want a lawn. I’ve always pictured our new house with a lawn.
Kellan: Lawns require a lot of water and upkeep. I think we should use hardscape for most of the yard and plant only drought-tolerant plants.
Mona: I don’t want my yard to be full of gravel and rocks. I picture a water feature in the middle, with annuals and perennials planted all around it, surrounded by a big, beautiful lawn.
Kellan: We can have some kind of slow-growing ground cover if you want to, but the rest isn’t practical.
Mona: I don’t know what you mean. We can plant a hedge over there and install planters along the walkway.
Kellan: Who will do the pruning and mulching? Who will pull the weeds and mow the lawn? Who will rake the leaves when the seasons change?
Mona: Well, I guess I will, with your help.
Kellan: Don’t count on me. My motto is: No muss, no fuss!
