We have been wanting to get rid of the grass in the front of our house for a long time. Grass makes no sense for us, we don't water it, we don't enjoy mowing and edging, we don't have kids to play on it, and I've never really understood why its the standard of neighborhoods everywhere. So after talking about tearing it out for a long time, we saw a front yard a few miles from here where the owners were digging out sections and planting vegetables. That was just the inspiration we needed to get started. We only dug up a small section, but it was a big step for us. We planted 4 jalapenos, 2 tomatoes, 2 zucchini, and 3 watermelons. Plus we started some seeds in soil blocks-sunflowers, kentucky wonder beans, pinto beans and popcorn. these will all go out front when they are ready.
here is the before shot.
After digging up the grass and adding compost, used coffee grounds, and top soil.
Finished until seedlings are ready to transplant. The grass will be disappearing quickly now.
