Are you thinking about taking out your lawn and don’t quite know what to do next? Would you like to use less water but still yearn for that patch of green? Tired of mowing and fertilizing? There are lawn alternatives that use 50-60% less water than a traditional lawn but can still provide you with that spot of green.

Master Gardener Martha Carpenter will show you examples of some of these grasses and ground covers and discuss how you might use them in your yard. Sun, shade, and water requirements will be discussed as well as irrigation and soil preparation.
