Advice from the Owner
Just take it one step at a time. It was some work but it was well worth it. My main piece of advice is to have someone else remove the grass. I wish I had hired someone for that piece of the project. I love seeing all the bees, butterflies and birds that the plants attract. And, of course, the diversity of plants and flowers is much more beautiful and interesting that the lawn was!Back to Inspiration Hub
