Very good idea. If you still have a lawn, you could make peace with dandelions and stop using the pesticides already, and reduce the size of it with some xeriscape features(drought garden).
On "bio-swales": a most attractive landscape
features I have seen is a shallow bowl/seep basin(from top, doesn't look like hole with the rocks)lined with flat smooth river rock, a "dry pond", dotted with irises, rushes and other water dwelling-type plants.
If your lawn doesn't slope, you could put a dry river bed/bio swale on the sidewalk side, or place rock hole/basin/bed where it appears to be lowest.
Also has the useful function of keeping the driveway from flooding in rainy season(it does happen).
Protection of precious resources(that we all SHARE)can be done simply with a little creative imagination. Using the brain keeps it alive. Have fun with it!

For storm drains, we could use bio swales, french drains and dry wells that can let the rain go back into the earth.
We could use decomposed granite pathways, rather the concrete impervious sidewalks.
Prettier, softer, less expensive and environmentally friendly.

This article offers no new information; everyone knows lawns are inefficient and hurt the environment. Michelle Hall holds an embarassingly minimal amount of knowledge on this subject. Further, I happen to know she spends most of her time actively pursuing and sleeping with men who are involved with other women. Maybe she should stop feeling sorry for herself and attempting to find attention through her promiscuity and more time on environmental studies.
