Areas of lawn require enormous amounts of water and nitrogen fertilizer when compared with any other ornamental planting. Lawns as a feature of a garden originated in the United Kingdom, where frequent rain and overcast skies allow the lawns to thrive without additional irrigation. Here in the East Bay, lawns require regular irrigation throughout the long dry season. That irrigation is costing you, the homeowner, money. As a homeowner, you may have already consider alternatives to a lawn that will save you money on water bills as well as provide aesthetic qualities more suited to our California climate.
