The January issue of ASLA’s Landscape Architecture Magazine was met with excitement as we are introduced to LawnReform.org. What originally began as a web blog in early 2011 has transformed to a platform for sharing your images, observations, and info on lawn alternative plants. Alternatives to over watered and over fertilized lawns are a major goal in some circles, but often it is difficult to spend time to research and experiment the hundreds of groundcovers and lawn substitutes in our environment.
The goal of of Lawn Reform Coalition is to share what you’ve learned with a nationwide audience to support this cause. To upload your lawn substitutes and ideas visit their flickr page, http://www.flickr.com/groups/lawnreplacement/
Keep an eye out for LawnReform.org and lawn alternatives in your neighborhood as we shift the paradigm of the unsustainable lawn.
