How do you reduce your lawn?
I feel the need to greatly enlarge garden beds and would like to know everyone's preferred method for creating gardens over lawn area.
My plan is to map out an enlarged bed, dig and amend holes where I plan on planting, plant, then cover the rest of the area lasagna style (ok, just with newspaper and mulch). I'm sure I'll be adding plants occasionally before the original grass has been composted, but will deal with that as it comes. I've created/expanded beds with this method...but this will be a larger project.
On the other hand, I could remove all the grass, but that seems like such a daunting task all at once.
How would you do it?
