You may have noticed I’m the unpaid spokesperson for the Delawning Movement of America? Presumably because, like the perennially annoying ex-smoker, I’ve sworn off lawn myself.
In my promotional furry I’m collecting stories and photos of de-lawning projects, and have recently added three cool ones by S. California’s Shirley Bovshow to the collection on my website:
- "Front Garden Replaces Lawn and Lone Palm Tree"
- "Create a Neat Edible Front Knot Garden"
- And "Extreme Lawn Makeover…Low-Water Plants Take Over!"
I finally got to hang out with Shirley in person in Portland for the GWA event, and we did some prime bus-sitting and garden-touring together. Ain’t she cute?
GOT ONE? I WANT IT!
Anyone else – amateur or pro – have a lawn removal project to contribute to our ever-growing collection? Just shoot me an email!
*But….here’s my Standard Disclaimer about Lawn Replacement, wherein I seem to do a 180 and defend the stuff.Posted by Susan Harris on November 1, 2008 at 12:28 am, in the category Real Gardens.
