Jodie's no-lawn entry garden in Californiacomments (12) November 8th, 2012 in blogs
Today's photos are from Jodie Cook in California. She says, "As I was looking at some of your posts, it occurred to me that your California readers might be unaware of and interested in a lawn replacement project I recently completed. I'm a Landscape Designer in southern Orange County and a number of our water districts are offering attractive rebates to encourage people to remove their lawns and replace them with unthirsty plants and water-permeable surfaces. After replacing lawns for some of my clients, I decided to take advantage of this program at my own home. My lawn was replaced with kangaroo paw (Anigozanthos 'Amber Velvet'), lavender scallops (Kalanchoe fedtschenkoi), Santa Barbara daisy (Erigeron 'Spindrift'--reported to be a non-selfseeding cultivar), and blue fescue (Festuca glauca 'Elijah Blue')." I love it, Jodie!! It must have been a pain to drag out the lawn mower for that little patch of grass, anyway, and the new garden is beautiful. As an east coast gardener, I'm just starting to understand the no lawn trend. It's not quite as important in the Northeast, but in California it must make a huge difference in water usage. Bravo. **Check out more of Jodie's work on her website HERE.**
