The American lawn has to be one of the greatest resource wastes in modern society. The second is the fact that we rake all of our leave up and let the city take them. Don’t people know that leaves and grass equal compost!? You are literally throwing the best growing medium away all the time. The lawn requires water, time and money and it gives you nothing back in return. That is a bad deal by anyone’s standards. We have essentially been bullied into lawns. That’s just not fair.
This is an article about putting that space to use. I think you are going to like this one. While the recommendation is not about growing food in your front yard, not a bad idea though. Its more about having the ability to utilize that grass and space to feed other beneficial livestock.
