Q.How to replace lawn and above ground roots
We are in a drought area, watering only once a week or drip system. My front yard is lawn, plants and several trees. I would like to replace my lawn with either drought tolerant plants, some other type of growth. I don’t care for the all rocks, gravel and pebbles look. As well as my two trees that are planted in the lawn, roots are growing above the ground.
