Alternative Solutions to Traditional Lawn Care, Landscaping, and Gardening.

For the next few months, a group of like-minded environmental focused collaborators will address the issues that surround America's compulsion with lawn-care, landscaping, and gardening. As a collective we will addressed the environmental impact of pesticides, the economic impact of maintaining the socialized standard of the neighborhood lawn, and the ineffective use of natural resources such as water and fossil fuels. For my part, I intend to begin looking for alternative solutions to these concerns. If we are not trying to reshape the thinking behind the taken for granted methodology of our yards then we will continue to teach the next generations the inefficient ways that are taught to us when we are young.
My first entrance is a video by Larry Hall that introduces the idea of rain gutter gardening as a way of rethinking the garden and the use of water. I added links to his Facebook page that will introduce you to a community of people willing to share and teach their ideas, enjoy!
