Staying Off Grass
One of the ways to break the shackles of your resource-hungry lawn is to replace the grass altogether. This non-lawn front yard from Kneeland Street benefits from its small size. The early-spring pic shows that this is obviously the yard of someone who loves to garden. This is not a plant-it-and-walk-away yard. The lazy gardener would probably be better served with the right selection of sustainable, carefree shrubs.
