Back Yard Lawn to Pollinator Garden

We converted approximately 1,000 square feet of lawn in our clients back yard to a pollinator garden feature almost exclusively Colorado native plants. Our client took the initiative to sheet mulch a signdificant portion of the grass (that is, they covered it with cardboard and wood chips), and we took care of the rest. Due to the sloping nature of the yard, we extended the existing retaining wall across the slope and filled it with a custom soil mix that supports native plants. We incorporated a pathway with pavers, and a mixture of squeegee gravel and wood mulch.
