It has taken many years to get my yard in this shape. I would miss the dandylions and crabgrass.

Heck, just paint the concrete green & call it good.

Snap, did you know that concrete can be dyed before it is poured, and then you won't ever need to worry about it needing painting?

The only downside is that I don't think that you can get dye it to get the deep, lush green color that you have in mind. About all that can actually be done is give it a tint.

Without question. A maintenance free yard? Heck yeah.

Hell, yeah. Not all of it, just the part I want to gravel because nothing but weeds grow there.

Not just No, but Hell No! Shudder!

Kind of like planting artificial flowers.

Much better to use native flowers and grasses that, after they are established, take little to no water. I know I've said it before, but I'm going to keep saying it.

Mow once a year or cut down by hand and you're good.

I'm not talking about that fake and hideous prairie reconstruction (really?) on Clinton Parkway. You can selectively plant native and adaptable plants and have any kind of garden you want. Echinacea, evening primrose, yarrow, hollyhocks, bee balm and many others fit right into even an English garden style. Sedums make a wonderful ground cover that will take even the weather we had last summer and thrive. You can't walk on it too much but there are other ground covers that you can walk on.

Only if it is that Brady Bunch, 1970's stuff... not the field-turf that they use now-a-days. Smells too much like rubber.

No

Let grow whatever will grow = no watering,no toxic chemicals which includes fertilizer. Mow and bag seldom then toss it in a compost. Aka as landscape conservation.

Or let trees fill up the yard or Verity offered a sweet low maintenance plan.

My neighbors dump their grass on my compost pile---I win both ways.
