It's safe for the little critters we care about.
We do not need to put chemicals on our lawn that require a Keep-off-the-Grass sign.
It brings back the butterflies.
Fertilizers and pesticides don't stay on your grass. They run-off into storm drains and streams, and everything that enters your yard is effected. Pesticides might kill the grubs in your lawn - but it kills the butterflies, too. Not only can we eliminate toxins, we can add food and shelter for pollinators to our yards, too.
It turns a problem into an opportunity.
Water, mosquitos, too much sun, not enough sun, tough spots to mow - all of these can be solved with plants.
And plants are just so pretty.
