Lawns can be expensive to maintain and can also be time consuming. According to statistics conducted by the Los Angeles Municipal Water District, an average Lawn requires a minimum of 84 inches of rain per year which is impossible to achieve due to the fact that the average rainfall for much of the nation is less than what the average Lawn requires. So, if you want to transform your lawn into a productive yet less water dependent project, why not try doing a food forest.
Food forest is simply the planting and growing different variety of crops that can be harvested in different seasons.
Here are 4 Simple Steps on how to transform your Lawn into a Food Forest
Step 1: Remove Your Lawn
The first step to do is to remove your unwanted lawn. Using pick and shovel, dig your lawn until the top grass loosens. Then, remove all the grass just leaving all the soil behind. Do not throw away the grass that you have removed, instead feed it to your chickens if you have any. Also, never add the grass to your compost.
Lawn removal can be a tiring task, but a little exercise can be good once in a while.
