Year after year, homeowners spend countless hours perfecting their lawn as they go to extremes to make sure that the common dandelion and other misplaced plants never appear. Be that as it may, lawncare is a $30 billion industry, chock filled with products that contain toxic chemicals like Imidacloprid, which are part of the new breed of systemic pesticides called neonicotinoids. These chemicals will wipe out any chance for a butterfly or bumblebee to visit your home to pollinate the vegetables in your garden much less your pretty flowers. Many conscious gardeners are rethinking how they manicure their land. They simply convert the front lawn into an edible landscape! It not only contributes to good soil health which is critical to the environment but also helps to lower food bills.
In The Edible Front Yard, author, Ivette Soler talks about how you can convert all or part of your front yard into an edible garden which can not only add texture and fragrance but a designer aesthetic appeal that will surely make your home the envy of your neighborhood.
