Advice from the Owner
The Grass to Garden project was such a helpful way to affordably convert our lawn to a native, xeric, pollinator-friendly garden. We only spent money on our drip irrigation system. We did all the labor by hand. Additionally, we used old newspapers as anti-weed lining, and covered that with mulch from the City of Boulder's free mulch pile. The pink cloud bloom multiple times through the summer and it made me so happy to have the two different native geraniums-- I got to see them bloom in our front yard and on mountain trails!Back to Inspiration Hub
