In this ultimate guide to rethinking your yard, Hadden showcases dozens of inspiring, eco-friendly alternatives to that demanding (and dare we say boring?) green turf. Trade your lawn for a lively prairie or replace it with a runoff-reducing rain garden. Swap it for an interactive adventure garden or convert it to a low-maintenance living carpet.
National speaker and award-winning author Evelyn Hadden encourages property owners to convert unused, unloved lawns to more rewarding landscapes. She is a founder of lesslawn.com, a partner at the lauded and provocative blog Garden Rant, and a founding member of the National Lawn Reform Coalition.
