Your yard is evil

Great video for all you lawn obsessed people in America.

Not that I didn't practice what I preach..... I removed my front lawn when I lived in Los Angeles and replaced it with California natives and drought tolerant Mediterranean plants. It attracted so many birds, insects and bees we couldn't believe it. I have a feeling that our garden was the Whole Foods Market of the neighbourhood for the local wildlife.

Just do it.....

  1. I love the title of this post - sucked me right in, great clip and I must say the first time I have had my own lawn has been since I moved to the hills where we live now which has very high rainfall and we don't water it. Kinda english. we also have 3 1/2 acres so there is plenty of room for natives, veg, fruit etc.
    'nother great psot - thanks.
