lawn conversion stories
Suburban Homestead Transformation
Now in its third year, this typical suburban corner lot has been transformed into a thriving, biodiverse ecosystem. Clean edges and structural layers give just enough order to vibrant blooms, while providing safe and healthy habitat for pollinators and wildlife. Neighbors are constantly stopping to tell our client how much they love her gorgeous landscape, proving that ecologically mindful gardens can be not only acceptable, but inspiring, in any neighborhood.
Backyard Pollinator Paradise
Incredibly, this photo was taken just one year after we converted this patch of grass lawn to a pollinator and annual veggie garden! Considering pollinators first, we prioritized native plants that would attract, nourish and support beneficial insects. As a result, our client's veggies absolutely thrived.
Memorial Garden Rain Catchment System
This special project brought together friends, family, church members, crew members, mentors and experts to create a system that converted a patch of lawn to mitigate water runoff problems in the client's yard. Water-loving native plants provide structure around the rain channel and pond, which fills with rain water. Our client often sends reports of growing aquatic and pollinator life making her rain garden their home.
Suburban Edible Food Forest
Another beautiful example of what's possible in a typical suburban front yard, with a bit of Earth First design and Cues to Care. On their way to full lawn conversion, the first phase incorporates native edibles and walking paths for humans to enjoy, with a focus on supporting pollinators and building habitat to create a wildlife corridor in the neighborhood.
Septic Tank Spruce-Up
This project accomplished multiple goals at once: convert lawn over the septic tank to reduce mowing and soil compaction, incorporate native plants with shallow roots that are septic-safe, create a stone path to disguise septic caps while maintaining easy access, and prevent cars from parking over the tank. We love seeing lawns above septic tanks turn into opportunities for more native plants and pollinators!
Permaculture Homestead Oasis
This project is in its second year of a multi-year transformation from a conventional mono-crop lawn to a permaculture homestead with multiple regenerative systems. By the end of the transformation, nearly 2 acres of lawn will be converted to clover, annual and perennial gardens, wildflower meadows, evergreen privacy hedges, Miyawaki forest plots and a variety of other features.
