We have taken the time to design our kits in a way that is easy to understand and simple to install.  Our goal is to provide you all the information and plants you will need to convert your lawn to a native plant garden. Conversion kits are for approx. 100-1100+ sq. feet.  They are designed to be flexible for you to customize.  We now offer a turn-key transformation including turf removal and installation!

Once you've received your order

What if the shape of my yard isn't exactly like the  My Avant Garden plan?

As long as your front yard area (excluding the driveway) is roughly rectangular, between 300 and 1100 sq.ft. and is mostly planted area (not patio) we can modify the plan to fit.  For more information, please email a photo and address to
