Lawn Free Living

During the summer months, it can sometimes be tough to take care of a front or back lawn. This is especially true if you live in an area where there is a water shortage. For anyone who has ever considered getting rid of their lawn, take a peak at these inspiring photos of yards with absolutely no grass!

This yard is mostly deck, but the drought tolerant plants help soften the landscape.

 With a seating area, a fire feature and patio space, nobody would miss a lawn in a space like this! 

This home's front yard looks lush and beautiful, and there is no lawn to mow!

With a raised bed, full of veggies and herbs, this yard still offers space for seating and play.

With a bright color palette of blooms and foliage, this home doesn't need a lawn.

So, for those of you who are slowly watching your green lawn turn brown, what do you think about going "Lawn Free"?
