Easy-on-the-environment lawn alternatives

Oh, how I would love to get rid of my lawn. I don't mean dump weed killer on it, but rather tear it out and replace it with plants that need far less maintenance.


My wife claims this is just a conspiracy by which I aim to get out of weekend lawn-mowing duty, but that's not true! It's not for me; it's for the environment, see?


In fact, such "lawn alternatives" have sprouted (get it?) into a veritable cottage industry.


Flickr even has a new photo tag called "kill your lawn" for photos of lawn alternatives.
