Creativity by the yard: thinking beyond grass
In this June 12, 2013 photo, the lawn remains the centerpiece in this yard but was greatly downsized and shaped by a landscaped perimeter consisting of furniture, statuary and a variety of perennials, in Langley, Wash. Less mowing, less watering and fewer chemicals was the result. It attracts more wildlife, too. (AP Photo/Dean Fosdick)
In this June 25, 2013 photo, the front entry of this home has more eye appeal after the lawn was reclaimed using shrubs, trees, flowering perennials and a walkway rather than turf grass, in Langley, Wash. A heavy mulch cover helps minimize weeds. (AP Photo/Dean Fosdick)
