I live in North Florida/Central Florida (depending on your point of view), and I absolutely hate mowing the lawn. Partly I just don't have time to do it, I work 7 days a week and live alone. I can't really afford to hire someone to do it regularly, which is why I work 7 days a week in the first place.
Anyway, I'm very much interested in replacing the grass with something that won't grow too high, won't make the neighbors too angry, and can handle the intense florida sun. My property has a lot of shade trees
but most of them are in the back yard, which I'm already letting grow wild.
