I hate mowing around our stop sign, it is always a messy tuft of long grass. Youngest ds took care of it for me, both beautifying it and making it easy to mow around.
First he cut out the sod around the sign in a circle and mixed in some potting soil and compost.
Then we walked to the greenhouse and picked up some full sun flowers that he proceeded to plant. Well done son! We'll have to check back and see what it looks like later in the season when all of the flowers are blooming.
Now if I could convince dd to yarn bomb that rusty old post....
