Save green

Ecotaity Life

Fact: 30% of water consumed on the East Coast goes to watering lawns; 60% on the West Coast. - US national wildlife federation

Eco-lawn is a blend of fescue grasses which, according to its Canadian distributors, Wildflower Farm, grows about 4 times slower than your average lawn grass, which means one-fourth of the mowing for me and you. Considering my aversion to yardwork, and the fact that a gas-powered mower running for one-hour releases the same amount of emissions an automobile driving 100 miles (gas powered mowers are estimated to account for 5% of this country’s air pollution), this is quite the benefit in itself.

Other alternatives for warmer climates:

Now it might be possible to keep a green lawn without spilling chemicals that kill earthworms, or use/spill more gas than needed.

Price: (according to wildflower farms site)

Eco-Lawn is available in 5 lb. bags. which cover 1,000 square feet
and 50 lb. bags which cover 10,000 square feet

A1ex, thanks for posting this. I've been reading and reading about how to install an Eco-lawn, and I'm going to do it. I love how lush and soft it looks. If possible, I want to let it go au naturel and not mow at all.
