Sowing winter rye is a pretty nice idea. Even if it takes a bit of preparation, it doesn’t take a lot of maintenance. Remember how terrible the lawn was back in August? Now, the lawn is lush and healthy. The irrigation system can be shut down for the winter for the most part. Farmer MacGregor fertilizes and mows so I don’t have to do a ding dong thing but to sit back and enjoy the emerald green carpet.
I’m not alone in the enjoyment.
