Compass Garden

Lari Pett in Milwaukee, WI

We turned our front lawn into a Compass Garden. We fenced in the yard after we removed the sod (by hand) then created the compass garden. It's quite unique for our neighborhood of mostly lawns. We also built raised planters in the street access. And our property is entirely grass free. We love it. We have been nominated for a neighborhood beautification award the past two years. That's quite an honor.
