Lots of Green in the Crown City

It's exciting to see more and more folks getting rid of lawns and designing with plants that are native, and/or need precious little water once they're established.
These homes in District Two show how a little creativity, a feel for architecture and geometry, as well as a bit of a green thumb can make for a landscape that is full of texture, colorful variety and helps lower the water bill.
Go district 2.


  1. We're offering free workshops on alternatives to grass lawns this Saturday and Aug. 20.

  2. We just started a similar project on our southerly front lawn space. My wife, who has the green thumb, says the native plants take 2 years to get used to their new environment. I like these examples very much.
