Regenerative Landscaping: How to Make Residential & Municipal Landscapes Part of the Climate Solution
Land management practices in agriculture and landscaping have led to an array of interconnected environmental problems. In particular, the reliance on mowed turfgrass as the default urban and suburban landscape is environmentally and economically costly. But there are alternatives! By rethinking how we approach lawn and landscaping, we can maintain the aesthetic of the traditional grassy landscape while adding beautiful perennial plantings that increase habitat, boost biodiversity and improve water management and quality. This approach could reduce the carbon footprint of suburban landscapes by as much as 80% while significantly reducing maintenance costs.
