Eco-Friendly Alternatives to Garden Lawns

Penny Cairns is an advocate of land-use that is sustainable, and her attention is turning to a part of our back (or front) yards we take for granted. The garden lawn...  Step back from convention, and consider that turf lawns can be replaced by more eco-friendly options, such as herb and moss carpets, flower or vegie beds interspersed with paving, Japanese-style gardens using sand and small stones. If you do want grass, how about mowing it less short to avoid evaporation? Come hear Penny’s advice, and share your own experiences.
