We have rat problems so only grass works to keep away rats.

Would really be nice to see yards that can be affordable by the common man.   Most of these had to have a fork lift to place the stone walls and boulders of interest.   Plus some of them didn't look that easy to maintain because someone had to keep the weeds out of the beds.   How about something for people in the mountains of NC, or Florida?    Not everyone can afford these expensive looks.

Next can we do yards that are realistic in communities stuck under HOA's or with young families? None of these are practical for my family. And despite the fact that we are in the middle of a terrible drought our HOA still sends out letters demanding that we water our yard so that it's green during the month of August or face fines. (but we must be careful to only water on our given days so that we aren't fined by the city)
And I can just see my kids trying to play soccer or any other activity in some of those yards.

I don't see a single yard that is kid-friendly. Isn't that a great reason for a grass yard?

Those tall plants would be perfect hiding places for burglars.   And those long grasses are good habitat for ticks.

In Southern Arizona people don't have lawns unless they just moved here from somewhere that does.  Then after they find out what water costs,  they gravel everything over.  You can always tell the newbies because they have an expensive lawnmower for sale at their garage sale,  but it won't sell for more than $20.
