Somebody will complain it attracts too many butterflies!

I love it; no mowing; everyman's (and woman's) dream

that looks like total B-Hole. It also speaks volumes of the homeowners level of laziness (to mow or to hire someone to mow). If you want a yard that looks like crap, move to arazona or move into a condo. My aunt lived in a neighborhood with a gravel yard on long island when I was growing up. It was the laughing stock of the neighborhood.

Guess it beats a trashy persons house with childrens toys and old furniture scattered about the lawn... or are those redneck lawn decorations?

Aesthetically, it's horrendous.

Thanks Spring H. - it's Florida Friendly with composters, rain barrels and we are trying to grow worms. Hope to get certified after the back is done.

As a Floridian I would never do that to my yard. The flowers are the only pleasing part.

That's the key. Friendly. Beats mowing grass which pollutes the environment. Better than throwing down fertilizers, insecticides, weed killers, and using way too much water. Worms are so good for the soil and everything that grows it it. Catching rain is fantastic. I haven't done that yet.
