Dear Lawn, Please Die

It is spring, and my tulips are finishing their beautiful display. My peonies are starting to bow their heavy heads as the buds swell and ants dance in ecstasy, anticipating the feast of nectar bloom will bring. My columbine have opened, and sway toward one another like the pretty little busybodies they are and my dahlias are green and strong, renewing acquaintance with The Dahlia Jungle. So why am I showing you dandelions? Because they're ALL I CAN SEE!!! Because no amount of Weed and Feed has made a damn bit of difference. Because my pretty gardens just look trashy alongside the Yard From Hell. I dream of replacing the front lawn with a pretty groundcover...but for the work, and the cost...Feh.
