There’s no doubt about it: lawns are a major part of the US landscape and probably aren’t going anywhere soon. These lawns not only provide enjoyment for property owners and park-goers, but also support the seed production and landscape maintenance industries.
But just because lawns are so integral to our landscaping, doesn’t mean we can’t think about them in a little different way. Instead of choosing grasses that require constant watering, pesticides and upkeep, it makes more sense to instead choose varieties that are low maintenance and low water, no matter where you live. This will benefit you as a homeowner, while also helping to reduce your negative impact on the earth.
