The Ocean County Soil Conservation District in New Jersey, through funding from the Barnegat Bay Partnership, has spearheaded numerous projects involving the installation of native plant gardens throughout the county using the Jersey-Friendly Yards website as a resource.
Pacific Northwest Urban Meadowscaping (PNUM), a collaborative effort of the West Multnomah Soil and Water Conservation District in Oregon, helps landowners develop lawn alternatives using native grasses and wildflowers well suited to the Willamette Valley. As homeowners become aware of the environmental impacts of their landscape choices, the District is receiving more requests for lawn replacement options.
