A retired couple in Santa Rosa hired us to replace their thirsty lawn and help them apply for the city’s “cash for grass” rebate. They had maintained turf in their gardens for over 40 years and struggled imagining a yard without a green lawn, so we happily presented a 3D concept to help them visualize the new outdoor space we designed. They were as thrilled with the results as we were. A flat lifeless lawn was replaced with a dynamic garden which featured planted berms, a boulder framed stormwater swale, a flagstone and gravel guest pathway, and plants galore! They are proud to show off their new garden that supports living soil, recharges groundwater, welcomes native pollinators, and is surviving the daily visits from the local deer as a result of our carefully selected plant palette.
