Your creating toxic fumes,oil & grease by using that large lawn tractor to cut your re-established lawn. More front lawns are being converted to vegetable, landscaped with shrubs,trees and colorful plants and flowers. These are densely planted and then mulched. This eliminates the seed,fertilizer,cutting,fowl air and cancer producing many “cides” that go along with the so-called “lush green lawn”
I had an event with a large white oak on neighboring property-it kept on producing a green lawn of moss. I dug,raked and fought for a few years until I came across an article that enhansed the problem by feeding with buttermilk,water and amounts of moss-this bloomed and now have a natural green lawn-I haven’t completed all the planting yet but my Question is What do you think will happen if I heavily mulch all the plantings and cover with 2 ” or more. Mulch stops weeds-I’m thinking the moss will turn into rich almost topsoil in time - What is your in put to this ? Thanks for your time. WILL -

We support edible yards, front or back, for those who do not need a lawn. One of our favorite new books on our shelves here is The Edible Front Yard by Ivette Soler. She shows people how to remove lawn and replace it with vegetables and fruit.

Our video and articles are meant to explain how to maintain a lawn organically, with as little water as possible, for those who need to keep a lawn.

Your landscaping question is interesting, but it’s too complex to answer properly here on the blog. For expert advice, please phone our store at 530-272-4769 x 321.

Hi.  I believe that I ordered some organic oat seed from you several week ago and still haven’t received my order.  I was actually ordering the seed for my pet who loves her grass, and I wanted purely organic.  Perhaps you didn’t get my order for whatever reason.  My number is 313-347-5436.  Thanks and have a good day.
