I think you will find this web site gives you the information you are looking for: http://www.epa.gov/greenacres. It provides useful information and links to additional sites that give you a step by step process for you to follow.
Let me also give you a couple additional tips: (1) Start small. Pick an area to begin that will allow you to try the transition and be sure it is something you want to do and something you feel confident doing; and (2) If you live in an urban area, check with your local governmental entity as many have ordinances regarding yard maintenance and upkeep.
