Lawn Alternatives





Are you considering getting rid of your lawn but aren’t sure what would replace it?

If you have a garden, or even a common area to plant things, now is a great time to get your hands in the soil. Native plants such as eco lawns, groundcover, or mini clover use less water and reduce the need for pesticides—which makes our rivers healthier!
