Yards: Our love affair with grass

food not lawns, landcape, lawns, yards, pesticides, eco-friendly yard maintenance

It is amazing how grass became what American yards are made of- the canvas in which everything else is put onto and around. And it seems we really do not question this fact. It just is and at this rate forever will be. Now I do not have anything against soft green grass, but our yards are more than this status symbol and conformity. They can serve a much higher purpose, if we put forth a little effort and ingenuity.
