Supplant your lawn

Christina Huh Nov 25, 2010

Though ornamental lawns can be lovely, they often require serious maintenance and require lakes of water to stay verdant. Redesigning your front yard to include drought-tolerant plants like succulents and even moss will not only keep water usage much lower and give your foliage a strong, sculptural quality that sets it apart from the neighbors. Let them worry about a yard that looks like a fairway at Augusta.
