Lawn vs Irises

Kitty, I know the competition of lawn vs irises!  Years ago I figured out 
I'[d rather weed than mow and the lawn dwindled.,  I left enough space for 
the grandchildren to play croquet - and besides, that area was too shady for 
irises!  The 5 ft requirement between beds for a National meant I had to  get 
rid of some boxwood  and re-align some borders and skimp on the 5 ft - altho 
the lawn  approaching the garden is still suffering after 9 years, but there 
is still too much mowing AND weeding  - but  the irises are more than 
rewarding, with extra pleasure from the rebloomers.  Rosalie nr Baltimore USA 
 zone 7(supposed to be clear enough to plant today)  ryfigge@aol.com
