Lawn Alternatives

Every house in America should be fronted with a non-native monoculture with the maintenance requirements of a golf course and the ecological value of a strip mine; a place where all flowers are called weeds and “keep off the grass” signs are the norm. Does this all seem a bit odd to you? It’s time to take a second look at this idea we call lawn. Join us and learn about the various alternative options available, from whole lawn replacement to strategies for reducing inputs and increasing ecological value. From well-known plants to new introductions, we will discuss various options that fit the needs of various lawn spaces.
