Are you thinking about replacing your lawn, but still want a “green flat place” in your landscape? Although turfgrasses have a unique set of attributes that are difficult to replicate with other plants, there are many reasonable alternatives if one is willing to make some compromises. You’ll learn to identify common problems, hear recommendations for when and how to treat them, and learn techniques for preventing problems from developing or reoccurring.
