Ditch the lawn

There are many great ways to carve our your lawn and replace it with colorful, even useful, low-maintenance alternatives, such as:

  • hearty ground covers
  • native plants
  • ornamental grasses or no mow grasses
  • shrubs
  • a micro meadow to attract butterflies
  • walkways or stepping stones
  • a gathering space like a fire pit or small patio
  • xeriscaping, which is much more than rock gardens with cactus
