I'm making dinner now, so I'll have to watch them all later, but I'm really excited about getting some ideas. I want to figure out what I can do in the areas I planned to leave lawn--I want the open space, but not the non-native lawn itself. I've got a vague idea floating around in my head, but hope to get a more concrete idea from these videos.

Thanks for posting them. :)

This is what I've been doing with most of our front space; I have left one tiny area to mow (to set off the rest, of course!).

Thanks for posting.

So far, I've made it through most of the first one while dinner is in the oven.

That was my original idea, but lately I've been concerned about the grass (and weeds) to infiltrate my native plantings. I want to create areas of low growing natives to offset swatches, clumps, mounds of taller natives. I've yet to fully figure it out, but an idea has been simmering in my brain for about two weeks now.

"an idea has been simmering in my brain for about two weeks now."

You do realize that's dangerous, don't you? Simmering ideas generally lead to the spending of money at our house.
