Lawn has to be the most expensive garden you can have, in every term you could imagine. Requiring the highest carbon footprint, the most time and effort, the highest chemical inputs and giving the lowest returns to both humans and wildlife. It is truly criminal that such things should be enshrined in the law of some countries.

Would if I could. Dang HOA requires lawn in front.

Sadly , same situation , although they doo keep the others from letting the place look like a dump .

@Cast1es @MissKathleen
Sound like you both have an opportunity to be the voice of reason and change. After all POA & HOA rules and regs are not written in stone.

@StarvingArtist I have been on the Board...trust me, it won't be changing in my lifetime. I am considering returning to California, anyway.

@MissKathleen
Well that is indeed sad that people don’t want to be more sustainable in your current community.

@StarvingArtist Arizona is generally Republican, and therefore climate change deniers and not at all concerned about the ecology.

@MissKathleen i have faced the same push back,, after 14 months, i think i am finally making some headway

I gave a talk today at the annual meeting of a local garden club. I did a co-presentation with Audubon and me as the native plant expert to explain the why, how and what of using native plants to attract birds and butterflies and create a healthier landscape.

We need more of that. Thank you for volunteering!

Every home I purchased had as my first project a rototilled yard without grass and newly planted veggies.
