Take the leap toward a lawn-free yard. Lawns are labor- and resource-intensive. Learn ways to reduce the amount of lawn in your home landscape and replace it with an attractive, more sustainable design that meets your goals. Whether you’re looking for less mowing and maintenance, reducing chemical use, achieving a more informal look, or enriching habitat for wildlife, The Morton Arboretum’s landscape architect, Susan Jacobson, will share inspiring examples and a step-by-step guide to getting started, including:
- Creating a design
- How to remove turf and replace it with plantings, mulch, and hardscaping
- Budgeting, working with contractors, and where to save by doing it yourself
Work one-on-one with a professional landscape architect and go home with a custom design sketch and a plan for making your changes. Learn what it means to lose the lawn and go “green” in a whole new way.
