My garden plans

So I've decided to kill my lawn. I was going to do this early this summer but I've been reading up on some alternatives to replace the lawn and it looks like late August to late September are the best times to plant them.

So now my plan is to Round-Up a big chunk of a my front lawn and replace it with these slow-growing fescues and perhaps mix in some regular prairie grasses and wildflowers for variety.

My plan for expanding my existing prairie plantings by smothering along the border with newspaper and adding new plants seems to be working well. The plants I picked up at the Friend's School sale are doing well. I'm going to look into propagating some of my existing plants to further that process.
