Advice from the Owner
Removing the tired, water-intensive patch of lawn made our small property so much more inviting and usable. We connected our front side and back spaces with a continuous path and planted waterwise, bee inviting, food producing plants. We love it! My advice is to use your imagination. Make a unique space that suits how you want to enjoy your space, and retool the idea of a water-guzzling lawn.
