So, I bought a vacant lot and had a house built. That means that when I moved in, there was no yard. Just some weeds/grass around the perimeter and dirt/mud in the middle. I got ducks before the yard grew in. The part of the yard without ducks, is growing weeds which I harvest for the ducks. In their part of the yard, they have picked everything clean so that new sprouts get eaten rather than grow. They also seem to have cleaned the weeds out of the edges with the exception of Japanese knot weed and some tall grass. Is there any hope of anything ever growing in their part of the yard? Will it forever be just a yard of mud/dirt? I live in an area where yards die in the summer (hot and dry) and grow in the winter (rainy and moderately cold). Do you think it might grow then? I didn't think about this when I got the ducks and now I'm wondering what I can do so that it isn't just a complete mud-hole in the winter... or if I just need to live with a mud-hole in the winter.
