There are instances where it is totally necessary to have an areas of lawn and I have even designed projects using lawn in the landscape however, in most cases lawn is not needed and therefore this allows for more room to have plants and less wasted space. So you can imagine how thrilled I was when this client in Santa Ana, CA contacted me wanting to kill their lawn.
I did just that! Proposed to have their front yard lawn removed and replaced with plant material in most areas and in one specific area with permeable hardscape and a nice trellis structure. Solar panels from Solar City complete the project. Before picture is above.
I will post an update in the next few day's with updated pictures.
