Lawn Replacement Kit
18 plants in 4" pots. Plant details coming soon.
According to Columbia.edu, “American lawns occupy some 30-40 million acres of land. Lawnmowers to maintain them account for some 5 percent of the nation’s air pollution – probably more in urban areas. Each year more than 17 million gallons of fuel are spilled during the refilling of lawn and garden equipment—more than the oil that the Exxon Valdez spilled.”
With all of that environmental damage, losing the lawn should be one of the first things to consider when transforming your yard to an ecologically beneficial landscape. Considering the size of most American lawns, this is no small feat.
This kit is designed to help you shrink your lawn in manageable sections, letting these natives become established and can spread to eventually cover larger sections. A mixture of native grasses, sedges, and wildflowers can be mixed together to create a green carpet that can tolerate mild to moderate foot traffic, and can be infrequently mowed to keep low, or as we recommend, allowed to flower and reseed the area.
These plants don’t need any pesticides or fertilizers, and aside from the watering needed to establish them, can handle droughts without die-back. You will be amazed by the number of pollinators that will visit your yard once the lawn monoculture is reduced!
This kit will fill approximately 18 square feet. It includes a planting plan and detailed information about the plants. For a cohesive design, repeat the kit multiple times in the yard.
