Eat Your Lawn

Edible EstatesStan and Priti Cox had a typical suburban lawn--until Edible Estates replaced their Salina, Kansas, front yard with a garden of vegetables, herbs, and fruit trees (right). The project, the brainchild of Los Angeles architect Fritz Haeg, is transforming nine water-guzzling, herbicide-hungry lawns across the country into organic oases. With the results documented online, in booklets, and at gallery shows, it won't be just the neighbors who are trying to keep up with the Coxes. --Arnie Cooper
