The second portion of the front lawn is completed except for edging and I will add that later. It is now no longer a lawn and I'm not sure exactly what to call it.
We now have pea gravel pathways and islands of mondo grass (both the dwarf and regular varieties) and a small area of pachysandra.
This photo shows almost the entire area although it is impossible to get it all, even with my wide angle lens.
In case you are coming in late, the main reason behind all this was my inability to get grass to grow (it is very shady). I think I'm pleased with the outcome (Michael says he is). I think the best part about it is less mowing. We now only have a few strips of grassy areas in the lower garden.
