Lawn grasses are the least “green” plant in California gardens. They take more water, more fertilizer, more upkeep, create more green waste than most other garden plants, and are a major source of water pollution. Learn several methods for ridding or reducing lawns at your home and what to replace them with.
Bye-Bye Grass! is a talk by California native Nan Sterman, a gardening expert, author, garden designer, and speaker who makes gardening accessible for everyone.
