Grow More Mow Less

There's turfgrass we use and turfgrass we don't use. All of it has to be mowed. And that affects our air quality. The average gas-powered push mower produces 14.76 pounds of air pollution in an hour. That's enough polluting gas to surround you in a big bubble. Electric mowers are much cleaner, but the cleanest way of all is not to mow in the first place.

So if your turfgrass is using you more than you use it, you might think about replacing it with something you don't have to mow. Low-mow landscaping can save you time, money, and hassle — and make our air cleaner — all at the same time.

There are lots of options to choose from: trees, shrubs, flowers, ground cover, edible plants, and even low-mow grasses. Whether you want to mow once in a while or never again, these plants can help you displace turfgrass and save mowing time.

Now is a great time to grow more and mow less!
