Litter-acy

Tidiness is critical in this urban area. One piece of litter on the parking strip can quickly metastasize into a rich collection of dog waste, cigarette butts, and noisy neighbors. Spring and fall are critical times to mow. Diligent attention, sometimes three times a week, produces a dense, resilient turf that can be ignored over summer's dormant period.
