We added a row of Mexican Feather Grass (Nasella tenuissima) along the driveway and Gulf Muhly (Muhlenbergia capillaris) near the front.
In addition to the low maintenance requirement, we have chosen plants that can be easily and inexpensively replaced should they be lost in the inevitable encounters with skateboards, soccer balls, or car tires.
The next step is to remove the grass over to the neighbor's driveway near the street and plant more grasses.
Sometimes it helps to look back at the before photos.
Okay, that does look so much better already and it should improve quickly from here.
