Parking is available in the street, but please take care not to park on anyone’s lawn.
"Beginners would especially benefit from this visit because I feel that seeing my yard could really inspire someone who’s just starting out—they can see how much can be accomplished in so little time!" —Keasha Palmer
When Keasha and her husband Art bought their house (pictured at right) in Belmont in 2014, the huge backyard was almost a deal-killer. “I looked at this giant sea of green and thought, ‘How are we ever going to take care of it?’” Then she started reading about people who were replacing their lawns with native plants. “I decided to give it a try,” she says.
And now their landscape is dotted with yellows, reds, whites, pinks, and purples in the three meadows she’s put in—so far. “It’s one of the most satisfying endeavors I’ve ever taken on,” she says.
Come see her work in progress on August 10.
