Our workshop host did not waste water irrigating her lawn. And she was looking for a way to use the water from her roof is a way that would enhance or beautify her living space/yard.
Bermuda grass was hand removed and then area was sheet mulched for two months.
And then the fun began!
In just five short hours the yard was transformed!
Ribbons of Rain Garden hidden beneath the mulch will nurture the drought tolerant plants that have flowers of many colors. In turn, the plants will attract birds and butterflies, and grow large and prosper.
