I had the immense pleasure of interviewing Evelyn Hadden, author of Beautiful No-Mow Yards: 50 Amazing Lawn Alternatives earlier this week to talk to her about the many different beautiful ways there are to replace our lawns.
“Beautiful No-Mow Yards” by Liz Chevat is a must-read for anyone who’s tired of spending hours mowing the lawn and wants to create a low-maintenance, eco-friendly yard. This book is packed full of practical tips, inspiring photos, and real-life examples of stunning no-mow yards.
The author starts by explaining the benefits of a no-mow yard, including less time spent on lawn maintenance, water conservation, and improved habitat for wildlife. She then goes on to share her expertise on selecting the right plants for your region, designing your yard for beauty and function, and managing weeds and pests in an eco-friendly way.
One of the things I love about this book is that it’s full of ideas for designing a yard that fits your unique style and tastes. Whether you prefer a lush, wildflower meadow or a neat, geometric garden, you’ll find plenty of inspiration in these pages. The author also includes tips for designing yards that are accessible for everyone, regardless of age or mobility.
What’s especially great about “Beautiful No-Mow Yards” is that it’s written in a casual, conversational tone. The author’s love for no-mow yards shines through in every page, and she makes it easy to understand the concepts and techniques she’s sharing.
