Replace Your Lawn

Lawns can be great for certain things—giving kids or pets a place to play, allowing space for sports—but there are some major downsides to covering our landscapes in lawns. Most lawns consist of only one or two types of grasses, which creates a barren landscape for wildlife, especially pollinators. Lawns also require a lot of time, effort, chemicals, and water to upkeep—which can get expensive!

This isn’t to say we need to get rid of all lawns to have a healthy watershed, but rather think about where lawns make sense.
