    Jan 3 2013: One thing I’m doing to save future laborer needed to maintain yard, is planting tiger lilies around my detached buildings. This has eliminated a lot of weed eating, currently I have about 600+ft along sides of my barns with an 18” wide area of lilies that I can just use a riding mower around with no trimming required. Now I plan to find a plant for the chain-link fencing.

    P.S. I'm using Tiger Lilies because here in the Midwest they come up early before the grass and weeds, and so weeds don't grow there.
