People Wondered What He Was Doing To His Front Yard. 60 Days Later? They Couldn’t Believe It!

Imgur user locolukas wanted to transform his lawn and share photos of the transformation on his profile. It took him about 2 months to complete the whole process. He turned his front yard into a giant vegetables garden giving a fresh smell to passerby. It is a great idea but the result is much more epic.

This is his front yard. He started off by placing 8 6’x4′ raised beds with reclaimed redwood barn siding.

Instead of turff, he filled them with the free compost that the city was giving away

The produce was so big that he had to give lots of the veggies away!

“I built a “free veggies” box to help spread the wealth. All sorts of people take what I offer up. I’ve seen people drive upand get out of there car just to check what’s in the box. It is amazing how many zucchinis my neighbors will eat.”
