Lawn Alternatives

Lawn Alternative

Improve the health of your soil with a lawn alternative!

Traditional lawns may not be the answer for everyone, especially in the West where water concerns are high. Consider alternatives to the traditional fescue like our herbal lawn mix, buffalo grass, yarrow or clover which will add nitrogen to the soil.

What are the benefits of cover crops?

  • Increases organic matter and available nitrogen
  • Increases earthworms and beneficial microorganisms
  • Stabilizes soil to prevent erosion
  • Brings deep-rooted minerals to the surface
  • Improves water, root and air penetration of soil
  • Increases the soil’s moisture-holding capacity
  • Breaks up subsoil and plow-soles
  • Provides aesthetic value and color
  • Provides habitat, nectar, and pollen for beneficial insects while choking out weeds
