The project of converting my front yard from turf grass with Asian shrubs to all native plants.


My house was built in the 50s. The landscaping was the epitome of 50s landscaping values. That is to say: turf grass and Asian shrubs. We are talking some highly mature plantings. Thick blanket of turf. Really deeply rooted shrubs.

Realtor's dream yard.

A complete nightmare for the birds and butterflies.
