Wild Strawberries in the Yard

Wild Strawberry growing wild in the "yard". A result of an experiment of not cutting the grass on a portion of a hillside in the Great Smoky Mountains from October to early June. Partly out of frugality and partly the desire for a wild natural yard - manicured perfect yards just seem out of place in some settings. The result - wild strawberries, dense stabilizing ground cover and lots of insects for the birds and small mammals to eat. You can see a few crawling in the video. Might not work everywhere, but simply just not cutting a portion of the yard for a lengthy amount of time is a worthy experiment.
