Go from Lawn to Garden
Did you know that you don't need chemicals to kill your water-thirsty lawn? Sheet mulching is an easy process of layering cardboard and mulch right on top of the grass. Plus, you can plant your new garden straight into the mulch. Our Lawn to Garden website has resources that will make your lawn conversion projects easier, including a directory of vendors who provide bulk compost, mulch and other sheet mulch materials.
The Benefits of Sheet Mulching:
- Saves time, money, and water.
- Builds healthy soil.
- Creates attractive drought-tolerant gardens.
- Eliminates the need for grass- and weed-killing herbicides.
