Title: Lose the Lawn: Design Tips for Drought-Proof Gardens. Has your lawn turned to dust in the drought? If you ditch the lawn to save water, what do you do with an empty yard? Put down some rocks and a lonely cactus? Stop! Don’t let your yard be a “zeroscape.” Xeriscaping can be beautiful! Pam Penick talks about alternative design ideas for lawn-gone yards that are beautiful, less thirsty, and better for the environment.
