Blending a modern sensibility with traditional architecture, this garden features a front yard meadow with native grasses (Carex praecracilis) and wildflowers. Poured-in-place concrete pavers in a meandering pattern slow the approach from the sidewalk to the entry. The modestly-sized backyard has been
a renovation of our front yard without a lawn

Instead of a lush green lawn, this outdoor space features gravel, native plantings and a raised water feature. A typical suburban lawn requires 10,000 gallons of water beyond natural rainfall per year, according to the Enivronmental

Re-imagine the lawn. Political leanings aside, traditional lawns consume a lot of water, require a lot of care and sometimes just aren’t the right fit.

Moss as an alternative to lawn.
moss good idea for back yard
I need to find some lawn equipment sales so I can do this. I love the path feel.
For those with moist, shady areas and acidic soil, moss lawns can be ideal.
Moss can be recruited for use as a lawn, too. If you already have patches of moss growing in your shaded turf, take a cue from nature and consider replacing your lawn with moss. It can take limited foot traffic once it has become established.

Cottage Garden with Curb Appeal
Goodbye to grass! A colorful palette of long-blooming perennials, shrub roses and ornamental grasses create a charming front yard cottage garden, brimming with curb appeal.
I have a small front yard with overgrown bed that need to be removed and grass in the rest of the yard. How difficult/costly would it be to pave the walk way, remove the grass and existing plants and install this garden look?
Love this. Is that Annabelle hydrangea on the raised bed to the left of the front door?
