|This lovely garden belongs to Pam Penick, a top gardener and blogger in Austin, Texas. Check out her site here: http://www.penick.net/digging/ |
According to the site, the Lawn Reform Coalition is made up of eleven writers and activists that are pooling their "knowledge of up-to-date solutions to the many problems caused by a lawn culture that demands perfection, conformity, and way too many inputs - especially water, fertilizer and pesticides." They have links to many great resources for ideas for non-lawn alternatives as well as a section on edibles! And if you're still attached to your grass, or like lawns in general, they include a list of ways you can improve your lawn care to make it more sustainable, and have a page on different types of grasses or lawn coverings that are more suited to particular regions.
Have you replaced your lawn with something else? Do you have any ideas for lawn alternatives? Post a comment and let us know!
