Water Wise = Creative Design Opportunity

The turf in this backyard has been reduced by 75%, with a new lawn area that becomes one element within the over all design. Areas that had been turf are now additional patio seating, vegetable gardens, wandering pathways and a native meadow with water wise perennials.

Solarization is especially effective for controlling annual weeds and pests in gardens with plenty of sun and available moisture. It can be used in raised gardens as well as areas slated for new lawns. More detailed research information and technical data on solarization can be found here and here.
