Here’s an interesting article on Burpee’s about lawn busting. This is an easy pain-free way to liberate your yard and help the environment.

I’ve liberated 300 sq feet of lawn so far this summer, and I’m still hoping to free up some more. How much of your lawn have you liberated?

    Does liberating your lawn mean removing it?

    I have been wanting to do just that because we have water restrictions here in California right now, due to the driest spring in 150 years. Many lawns in the area are semi-brown to brown (like ours). I would rather have a native plant garden, because they can really look nice when properly designed.

    What have you put in place of your lawn?

    Yes, it means removing.

    I’ve been liberating my lawn in the back yard to put in raised beds for edible plants. I’ve also been expanding my front flower beds each year to accommodate for blooming plants & bushes.
