I don’t understand why lawn care service companies keep leaving their flyers on my front door.
I trimmed back my little bluestem in March. My flower are growing exactly where I planted them and where they reseeded on their own. If a flower comes up where I do not want it, I pull it up. I pull up weeds as soon as I see them. In fact, I have fewer weeds (unwanted plants) than my neighbors have in their lawns.
Why would a lawn care company think I needed their services? And what could they do for me anyway? Mow down all of my native flowers and prairie grasses? Or even worse, spray them with chemical fertilizers and pesticides? Make me conform to the suburban standard? If they did that, where would all my butterflies, dragonflies, birds, and lizards live?
No, I have no use for a lawn care service. I will take care of this plot of land I call a prairie on my own and with a little help from nature.
