Do you know that we waste a third of our water on the lawn and landscaping? Of that third, almost 50% of that water is misused or wasted by poor system design, over watering, or evaporation. Most folks water their lawns too long and too often. This just means you have to cut the grass more, and the lawn mower creates several different sources of pollution.
Furthermore, I get so sick of looking at manicured grass. Who am I to discriminate between a dandelion and grass and decide one plant has more right to thrive than the other? A champion of biodiversity, I will not adhere to this country’s hegemonic pro-grass agenda. I just have a sneaking suspicion that a day will come sooner rather than later when we will look back with disgust at the amount of clean drinkable water we dumped into all our precious lawns.
