Title

Alternatives to Grass for a More Environmentally-Friendly Yard

Summary

The idea for this article would cover why lawns aren’t environmentally friendly and provide readers with alternatives to traditional lawns. Such examples of environmental unsustainability in lawns include 200 million gallons of gas used in lawnmowers each year and 70 million pounds of pesticides which then find their way into streams, oceans, and rivers. People used to embrace clover as part of their lawns until herbicide companies started calling clover a weed in the 1950s.
