Replacing lawns with front-yard gardens is becoming increasingly popular in Watertown, Mass. One resident says the gardens are require much less effort than maintaining a lawn. "So there's a lot of butterflies, there's a lot of bees, there's a lot of birds," Patrick Field said of his front garden. "So there's a really cool wildlife aspect for an urban area that's nice, and kids get to see this stuff and pick the flowers and suck the honeysuckle out of the honeysuckle."
