Brown Bag Learning Series: Kill Your Lawn

Presented by Mark Richardson of The New England Wild Flower Society

According to NASA, more surface area in the United States is covered by lawn than by any other single irrigated crop. Lawns are resource-heavy, requiring irrigation, fertilizer, and pesticides to thrive in our climate. Learn why you should “kill your lawn” and how to replace it with beautiful and environmentally friendly native plantings.
