Have you tried the meadow idea instead of your water guzzling lawn?
The wisest, brightest, greenest gardeners around the world are now divorcing their lawns and marrying meadows!
This is a very cheering event for the health of the planet. Earlier people who owned lawns fertilized and watered to make grass grow and then recklessly tore it up every week with growling, fossil-fuel powered lawnmowers. To add to this, was the reality of too many accidents happening with lawnmower usage.
Now the meadow owner has a more fluffy, happier looking turf made up of native grasses, sedges, or herbaceous plants such as yarrow.
According to experts who wrote the book Green Your Home All-in-One for Dummies: meadows hardly ever need mowing. They look fine even if you decide never to mow them!
Meadows don’t guzzle up the water that is badly needed for people now! The correct plants in this haven will not have pests and diseases and will not drink up water. Best of all, they will attract beneficial and native insects!
