I've reached a new state of being, and I owe it all to my front yard. I call it "peak curmudgeon." Because there's one soul-sucking Sisyphean home task that drains me like no other — the endless loop of pulling weeds. I try to keep on top of them, but no matter how often I deal, they are there waiting for me again the following week. Weeds leave me muttering and cursing mess. I recently finished a backyard makeover, and at the very tippy top of my must-have list was a weed-free existence. You feel me, I know you do.
