What I've Been Up To...

We finally did it.  We ripped out the lawn in the front yard and replaced it with plants.  Real plants.  And I managed to compile the experience into an Instructable.  I certainly wouldn't say it's the only way to do it, but it certainly was a learning experience.

Turn Your Front Yard into a Garden - More DIY How To Projects


  1. How cool...lots of work, but well worth it!!! I had not heard of Instructables before...pretty great! Impressive!

  2. Lots of hard work, indeed--it's really looking great! I love the stocktank arrangement. I haven't tried that yet, but we're like you: no lawn at all anymore. We find weeding more rewarding than perpetual mowing...

  3. It's so exciting to break "new" ground for a fabulous project. It'll be a favorite in the neighborhood.

  4. I only have a small patch left in the "front" yard. wohooo. Just need to get the gusto up to finish ripping it out.
