I am fixing up my house and want some ideas of what to do with my lawn. I don’t want grass anymore (can’t add a good sprinker system because of the layout) and I was thinking of either bark dust or something else. If you know of a good website for this, I would appreciate it.

I am slowly eliminating my lawn; I am replacing it with brick walkways and large flagstone/pavestone areas and ornamental grasses/vinca and boulders. Most ornamental grasses and vinca, once established, needs very little watering and no mowing.

For some ideas, try http://www.lesslawn.com/

You may also want to search for “beneficial landscaping”, the current “correct word” for replacing your lawn with more eco-friendly (and wallet-friendly!) alternatives.
