Claiming New Garden Territory

The deed is done. A crew of talented tree-removers cut down four privets, a palm, and a huge laurel, in our garden and parking strip. For all my recent talk of concern over (temporary) loss of bird and critter habitat, I couldn’t be more pleased with our newfound sunshine.

The front yard and the east side-yard are now in full sun through the morning and part of the afternoon. Questions remain: what should we plant, and how can we really get rid of the abundant Bermuda grass, without chemicals? I see long, backbreaking hours of shoveling and archeology-style weed removal in my future.
