    Wow! That DC backyard is spectacular!

    Been no-mow for 2 decades.

    Susan, congrats on scoring the cover shot! Well-deserved. As for my yard, it is so big that mowing will likely always be part of it. But I’ve chopped it up enough with plantings to make annoy my husband.

    I would LOVE to convince my husband to go no-mow. We’ll have to see what I can do.

    I am swooning over the meadow at the Olbrich Botanical Garden! Love the species tulips scattered among the grasses. I remember Olbrich from when I lived in Wisconsin – a small but wonderful garden.

    Going no mow this spring. Need the book for more ideas!

    I so wish i could go no mow.

    I encourage many of my clients just to let most of the yard go natural and hire a mower once a year. The wildlife they attract is often incredible!

    Beautiful, especially Barbara Dinsmore’s garden. I could lose track of time there quickly.

  • Ellen 22 / 11 / 2016

    would love this lawn and book

  • Hydro Pros 23 / 11 / 2016

    I would die to be able to grow a no-mow. Maybe with some pointed convincing…

    These photos are inspirational.
    I’m three years into transitioning to a
    no-mow yard…a new look in this neighborhood of traditional lawns.
    I would welcome ideas to add to the
    transformation.
