It is possible to have a great-looking lawn without hours of mowing, watering, fertilizing, weeding, and reseeding--think native! Native grasses are easier to care for than conventional high-maintenance turf, and they help restore biodiversity, because they don't disturb the surrounding natural habitat. Best of all, native grasses create a beautiful lawn. This ground-breaking guide tells you everything you need to know to choose, buy, plant, and maintain native lawns in every region.
