I'm down with that kind of yard. I would rather see a yard filled with things that are useful, like trees and vegetable gardens instead of grass. Grass is nice to lie down on in a park, but it's so inefficient to have in thousands of yards around the city. My parents have a place in Arizona, with no grass. So much less hassle.My back yard 2017, May 14, 8:55PM
For scale, the back fence is 25 feet. The uncovered raised bed on the right is 52"x20'
IIRC, the 2 covered beds contain flats of plants hardening off, and there is a risk of frost.
There's no lawn. The ground is covered in 3 inches of cedar mulch. Weed protection, and an absence of muddy gum boots when entering the house.
Obviously, this kind of yard only appeals to some.
