Shrink your lawn

Posted on August 15, 2010 at 10:13 AM
Shrink the size of your lawn and conserve 2 bags of fertilizer a year. Replace the lawn with shrubs and rocks.

Not only will you reduce the use of fertilizer, you will also cut way down on water. In keeping with the conserve 2 theme, we'll guesstimate saving 200 gallons of water. These numbers are vague but good enough to get us all thinking in this direction.

If you have a need for a playing field, consider using your town or city's fields. Your tax dollars are paying for these fields and they are probably bigger and more suitable. Does it really make sense that every house in the neighborhood has a lawn big enough for a sporting event?

You will also save your own time spent fertilizing, watering, mowing, weeding, reseeding, thatching, etc. That's at least 2 hours a week in the summer if you average it out.

Japanese Gardens are a great way to reduce lawn. The attached example at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts is, of course, more than you would do at home but it's a good idea starter.

Home Depot and garden centers have selections of all kinds of rocks - bags of river pebbles all the way up to truckloads of a variety of rock sizes. You can also get pallets of big rocks or flat rocks that are nice for walkways. Whenever I replace some lawn with rocks, I am relieved that I now have a few less square feet of grass to maintain.

Daylilies are a rugged perennial that seem to grow, spread and thrive anywhere. I have them on a steep bank upon which I used to grow grass (poorly) and mow (with great difficulty). Now the daylilies grow and flower. They look really good and require no maintenance. If I need more, I split them and transplant part of a clump. Here's a pointer to a good daylilie web site

If you must plant a lawn... I have just planted a type of grass seed named Pearls. It is supposed to develop a root system 12" deep compared to typical grass root depth of 3" to 4". This greatly reduces the need for watering because the roots go deeper in search of water. It is also designed to require much less mowing. So... you save on water, time for mowing, and gas for the lawn mower. Pearl's web site is here.
