Live Groundcover & Lawn Removal

Live Groundcover will bring functionality to your outdoor space all year.
Remove your lawn and be free – free of pesticides, free of fertilizers, free of green waste… and free of worry!
Lawn removal is so valuable, some localities will pay you. We can help you navigate that process if that’s an option where you live!

Biodiversity & Beauty

The biodiversity and inherent beauty that come with a mixed and dynamic living groundcover is something that will give lasting beauty for years to come, with many interesting sights through the seasons and from wildlife visitors.

Our choices of native plant living ground covers can reduce allergens (as flowering plants generally rely on pollinators like butterflies to spread pollen, while non-native grasses and trees spread pollen on the wind). By using established principles in fire-resistance & erosion resistance, it is both wise and natural to incorporate native plants into your landscape’s design.

Living Groundcover


If you’re already excited for the advantages of removing your lawn but enjoy the functionality of an open space with a living groundcover, FlannelBush Gardens can help! With single species that can emulate the look of a lawn or attractive mixes to provide textures and diversity, there are many options with native plants as live groundcover. We can work with your local ordaninces or HOA rules or other requirements.

Textured, Blooming & Diverse


The biodiversity of a more mixed and taller living groundcover is a more enjoyable option for people and wildlife. A live groundcover of yarrow, blue-eyed grass, and other favorites that flower will feed wildlife and protect & regenerate the soil.

Boutique & Curated Ecosystems

The most spectacular way to decorate a landscape is with some of the plant gems of the local area, placed in ideal conditions with a bit of extra care to make their best features shine. Grow your own flowers for bouquets, herbs for medicine, or grow various species for pollinator & wildlife support.

Everything you need;
None of what nature doesn’t

Eco Friendly

We treat every part of our job with care to do no harm, whether it’s people & pets, plants, wildlife, or the soil itself.


We do our work with compassion and consideration for all living things, choosing to uphold ourselves to the highest ethical standards.


Everything we do is with the aim to make the most of resources on site, relying on hand-work and planning, as well as reducing, reusing & recycling.

Water Saving

Landscaping that conserves water is more critical now than ever. From grey water, rain water, and storm overflow capture & recycling to planning & plant choice– we work to make the most of every drop.

Nature’s Gifts

Your surroundings are unique to you– growing plants that provide a harvest of food, herbs, medicine, or decoration can be incorporated into your landscape design plan and your maintenance plan can include harvesting.

Clean & Tidy

Using nature as a guide, we keep plants looking nice & thriving, with minimal disruption to the many roles they play in their ecosystem.
