NAPERVILLE PROJECT – Front yard rain garden, wildlife bird habitat, no lawn

Permeable walkway, wildlife habitat, recycled and local materials front door landscape photo

This side yard is now a beautiful rain garden and wildlife bird habitat, eliminating all lawn.  Since it’s in the front yard, hopefully passersby will think about their downspout run-off and need for a lawn. Paths throughout allow access to water spigot, homeowner’s bird feeders & baths, plants, and gate through arbor.

A well designed rain garden has carefully chosen plants, keeps water away from the house, considers overflow and grading, and integrates functionally and visually with the rest of the landscape.
