Let’s rethink lawns.

We are a loose coalition of writers and activists (including lawn-haters and lawn-improvers) from across the country spreading 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. Not to mention millions of acres of lawn that could be something else.

Solutions include

  • Using alternatives to lawn where it is not used or needed.
  • Choosing lawn grasses that are appropriate to the site and climate.
  • Caring for lawns in ways that are friendly to wildlife, soil life, children, and pets.

Join us at our Facebook page to keep abreast of current lawn reform topics including news, research, solutions, and discussions with thousands of other concerned and active citizens.
