I need any advice you guys have!
I have a large front lawn that I want gone. I want to plant my entire front yard with drought tolerant perennials. I do love the look of berms so I thought I would add them while I was ripping out the lawn.
So my plan is this:
1. Rent sod cutter and remove all the lawn.
2. Pile sod (upside down) to create berms.
3. Rototill areas around berms to loosen/mix soil then add a top soil mix to the berms.
4. Lastly, cover the entire area with weed block cloth, add 3 inches of wood mulch (even on berms) and start planting!
Will it work? Are there any hang ups that you can foresee? Any unnecessary steps that I am taking? Any necessary steps that I missed?
