So I'm pretty inept when it comes to lawn stuff. DH was in charge of that, and well, it hasn't gone so well. On my way out, I just happened to check our little mailbox thingy and pick up the newspaper from our front door. And, yeah, our housing has given us 2 warnings about the backyard. Mostly weeds/overgrowth. Each was two days for fixing it, and the last was issued today. BLAH. But I'm glad I decided to check the front door! I'm quite annoyed they didn't bother ringing the doorbell or anything. So I need a fairly cheap, easy way to take care of the yard. It's fairly small and burnt to a crisp, so the grass itself isn't a huge problem, just dead. There are horrible weeds, though, with spines and fluffy things. Also some build-up along the edges of the fence on one side. So what do you think? Cheap gloves, weed wacker, and clippers? I have an Ace and a Home Deopt. Not a whole lot of money to work with. And two days to make it look decent. HALP.
