Clover lawn in the backyard?

Our backyard lawn is slowly getting more and more pee-burnt. Not a nice picture to look at.

We are working step by step on achieving a "greener backyard" and are dealing with concepts like xeriscaping, hardscaping, less irrigation, less fertilizing - with the aim of not only having lower maintenance but also an ecologically-friendlier place to enjoy. ...

War of the worlds: sprinklers vs. dogs, or another reason to embrace “xeriscaping”


Our dog Troy seems to strongly oppose the tech world of the monsters, aka. the sprinklers in the backyard. They hiss, they make him wet (which he does not mind at all but he strongly opposes to being wiped out afterwards),  they create unexpected puddles in the backyard, which is just great for him but he is not allowed to drink from them because of another monster words, like “fertilizers”. Yes, sprinklers suck. ...

Hammy and Troy


Hammy was not happy with Troy’s arrival. Not at all. He was bitterly disappointed and obviously acted betrayed. As if he was not enough to us, so we ended up with that stupid dog. And the dog is not even eating nuts, like a normal animal would do.

Hammy, the Arrogant Squirrel


The arrogant squirrel that used to be a kind of a pet for us before our dog is the most arrogant squirrels you have seen. All squirrels are demanding and sticky, as we all know. But this one goes to extremes. It even harasses our springer spaniel because he was the second one to appear in this yard. The squirrel was the first one. That means the yard is his (aka. the squirrel’s). Period.
