This 45 minute presentation presents workable examples of lawn alternatives that can work in any part of the country. For many gardeners traditional, lush mowed lawns are increasingly recognized as a wasteful and boring use of limited garden space. There are so many more practical, fun, and ecologically appropriate uses of lawns – from edible landscaping, to patios, to meadows. Saxon has seen these gardens in his travels around the country for books such as The American Meadow Garden (with John Greenlee), Small Patios (with Hazel White), and Beautiful No-Mow Yards (with Evelyn Hadden) and will show example and explain why they work where they do. Presented at San Francisco Garden Show
