Sigh. There's really no need to beat around the bush (no pun intended) -- taking care of a yard flat out sucks. I mean, who was it, exactly, that decided having a huge chunk of grass in the front and back of your house that needs constant attention was a great idea?
Maintaining the outdoor spaces around our homes is just as much of a pain in the butt as keeping the inside clean, which one mom from Nebraska obviously knew -- and figured out a brilliant solution for.
Theresa Gallo had a $30,000 synthetic yard put in, and all she has to do to take care of it is water it once a week, and "pick up sticks and blow off leaves."
No mowing. No fertilizing. No weeds. Nothin'.
