    Wonderful! And puh-leeze, y'all put photos on the Lawn Replacement Flickr group, and tell us what plants we're looking at in your new non-lawn.


    Congrats to the winners!
    And thanks Susan for the kind words and for hosting this contest. It has been fun seeing so many people enjoying their lawn-less yards.

    Great to see these alternatives. I wanted to enter my former front parkway in Chicago - have hundreds of slides but the company I've been using to scan them to digital is no longer doing so, and it's costly to use more professional outfits. One day I'll manage to convert one of the best images and will send it your way to add to the portfolio.
    I have a shot where you can see down the block, an endless row of postage stamp lawns, behind the image of my 'postage stamp' densely planted with perennials, bulbs, 1 shrub, and a tall willow arch over a flagstone path.
    It rained there during the growing season!
    No watering or irrigation :~D

    That was fun! It's so encouraging, and I've enjoyed seeing the many possibilities for having a lawnless (or lawn less) garden.

    Interestingly, I'm seeing changes in my home town. A street that used to have a lawn in front of each house now has perennials in front of a third of them. It only took 3 or 4 years (of drought...)

    Thanks for hosting!


    Thanks for drawing me! I really enjoyed going through all the posts that showed what people have done with space once occupied by a lawn.


    Those are inspiring photos. I drive past a non-lawn home regularly, and it just looks weedy and unkept. So it's nice to see how great a lawn alternative can be. Keep stretching my vision, Susan!


    What a FABULOUS contest! I was so thrilled to be a part of it, and to be encouraged to post on such an important topic. I am so behind the Lawn Reformers, I am absolutely beside myself!

    And thanks for the shout-out! I always think my pics look better on other people's blogs! What's THAT about, do you think? HA!

    You are a wonder, Susan ... just read your guest rant on GR, and have to pop up to comment on how smart you are and how much I agree with you on just about everything!

    great contest and very interesting that someone is paying attention to this small topic. Lovely post.
