Now that the grass is short, the weeds are very evident. They look all scraggly where there should be smooth blades of grass. Fortunately, I have this handy lawn tool called the Weed Hound. It's essentially a claw at the end of a long metal pole, but it works great! You stick the claw in the center of the weed, step on the little handle to push it into the ground, give a little twist, and it pulls the whole weed out by the roots. Viola! You can check the Weed Hound out in action here. It's a really great tool.

So, the lawn is mowed, the weeds are in the process of being removed, and we now look more like responsible home owners. Just don't look to closely at the paint job on our garage door. We haven't gotten to that yet...
