great idea!

There are many yards going grass-less in Mountain View. We were so impressed with our neighbor's creative touch with landscaping and gardens, we shut down our front yard water hog sprinkler system last year, sheet mulched the grass, and called on the help from Diane Hayford at Skyline Design Studios to help us design a unique and pleasing front yard garden landscape, with emphasis on vegetables, fruits, berries, with very attractive paths and sitting areas.
