More than a decade ago, this homeowner began taking out her lawn, bit by bit, to create a native front yard that conserves water and attracts birds, butterflies, and other important pollinators. Peppered with creatively re-used items, such as tree trunks and Palos Verdes stone, and featuring a large (20+ ft.) native elderberry, the garden exemplifies a successful lawn-to-native conversion patiently accomplished on a tight budget. The back yard was recently converted from lawn to an outdoor room, with permeable hardscape and natives around the perimeter. Back Yard Design: Oakley Gardens.
