Did you know that getting rid of your lawn can save 80% of you water bill? That you can put in native plants that attract songbirds, butterflies, hummingbirds and beneficial insects? Why waste all that water on a patch of green that does nothing? Having native plants also saves you the cost of the mower, keeps chemical fertilizers out of the waste stream, and makes your lot look wonderful.
