We discovered a treasure trove of useful information to help you adopt an organic approach to improving your lawn (link at the end). There are many different aspects to consider with lawn care – the main factor is learning how to keep it strong and healthy to withstand regular use and variations in the weather. By considering the location, soil type, grass species, composting, watering and cutting, you will learn how to achieve the best results with the least time, effort and resources!



Lawns were first created from pasture land – if you have seen how sheep graze a field, the result is very similar to a lawn created by mowing! A well-kept lawn was once a status symbol of the aristocracy, showing that these landowners had the wealth to have a recreational or ornamental area of land that did not need to be cultivated for subsistence. [1]

The tradition of keeping a lawn in the general population is quite recent although it still reflects the idea of status and the aspirations of ordinary people towards luxury – it was always a high maintenance feature until lawn mowing machines became common. Nowadays it is taken for granted that most gardens have one and it is hard to imagine a neighborhood without them!

During the 20th century, many chemicals have been formulated to try and create the “bowling green” style lawn by killing weeds and insects and by adding chemical fertilizers – this strategy for the perfect lawn comes at a great cost to the environment so people are now beginning to understand that it is unsustainable and a safer organic approach is required.

The benefits of organic gardening are revealed by a return to a natural balance and more abundant native wildlife in your garden – and there will be no need to worry about possible harm to our children and pets from using chemicals!

Lawns first developed in the relatively wet climate of western Europe, to which they are best suited, but their popularity has now spread worldwide. In dry areas, turf accounts for a high percentage of water usage – this article will give you some tips on how to minimise your usage and has the courage to suggest alternative use of the land where it is most unsuitable for growing a lawn.

Consider reducing the size of your lawn if possible – a smaller lawn in the right location will be easier to maintain too! Did you know that some types of grass need less water? Reducing your water usage will save you money but it can also help the grass to grow stronger roots! [2]

It’s also good to remember that all life depends on clean water – it is the most precious resource for future generations! Please use it wisely and efficiently! [3]
