I like the idea but kids and pets make it required to have my garden fenced off. I am looking at planting some low water use ground covers up front as an alternative to river rock which is so dull and hot.

I like the idea of a lawn having a range of turfs, from flower beds, to vegetable gardens, to a plain old lawn. That sounds like a nice yard to me.

I like the idea of using part of your property for veggies, etc...but my kids (not to mention my dog) would be devastated if I took away their entire lawn. I think there's something to be said for a yard that you can spend real time in.

i love this idea! kudos to everyone whwho is able to do this! why hide your veggie garden when you can show it off?!? but i'm wary of random strangers walking onto my property and picking off things, what do you do about that? are there any veggies that 'bloom'? to make a floral accent?

This is awesome! We were just discussing the native plants vs. invasive foreign plants issue (apparently a hotbed of controversy for the discipline) in my landscape architecture class last night!
