Why Plant a Lawn?

Why Plant a Lawn

Since the 1800s, Americans have been trying to emulate expansive aristocratic estates in Europe – but why???

Why do we now consider a flat, green lawn to be the most beautiful use of space? It certainly isn’t efficient when you consider all the time we spend laboring over it (or paying someone to do so). And it is terrible on the planet and her wildlife.

We’re destroying natural habitat and, along with that, the EPA says lawn equipment emits 11 times the pollution of cars! I would never have guessed it was that huge.

Take a moment to read this informational article. I, for one, have decided to let more of my yard go back to nature – saving time and money as well as loving the wildlife. How about you?
