June Scott Design added this to How to Replace Your Lawn With a Garden
Planting: Now for the fun part. In the western U.S., you can plant during much of the year, but doing so in fall and winter means that plants will have the benefit of cool-season rains to become established before the heat of summer. This actually holds true (for trees and shrubs) in many other parts of the country as well, because root growth does not halt until temperatures belowground dip below 40 degrees Fahrenheit.First StepsWatch for incentives. Some cities offer rebates for homeowners who replace their lawn with less thirsty plants and/or low-volume irrigation. Check with your municipality before beginning your project.Get and save ideas. Browse photos of low-water landscapes. (Tip: Select your area on the left side of the Houzz Photos page.) Then save your favorites in an ideabook.Get help if you need it. Find landscape architects and landscape contractors in your area.Or make it a DIY project. Several Houzz ideabooks can help you start thinking about your project, including The Case for Losing the Traditional Lawn, 7 Low-Maintenance Grass Alternatives and Get Along With Less Lawn.

Use the lasagna method. This technique uses layers of cardboard or newspaper as well as a thick layer of organic mulch to deprive the lawn of light and water. The grass will die in about two months, and you can dig right through the mulch and newspaper and plant in the soil.
