Recently, we learned the Why about replacing some of our lawn space with native plantings in a piece by Dan Zak of the Washington Post that featured our own Edamarie Mattei.

Now we get the How. Sergio Pecanha has provided an excellent overview of simple steps you can take in your own yard to make a significant impact.

Backyard Bounty’s design team has also developed a list of 10 things you can do now to improve your yard’s ecological impact.
