Advice from the Owner

I'm thrilled to not have any grass! Not only will it save water, but so much of my time fertilizing, weeding, aerating, mowing, and fretting. The conversion has been a big project, but I know that in the future it will be so much easier to maintain and with less water usage. I'm so glad I did it!
