Lawn Wars: The Struggle for a New Lawn Ethic
Like it or not, we're embedded in the natural world. We might as well learn to live more harmoniusly with it. Part memoir, part how-to, part problem-solving, Lawn Wars gives a historical context and resources for a new movement that is showing up across the nation. Difficulties encountered by aspiring natural landscapers are explored with wit and factual information. The rich rewards of making such a shift are described in lyrical prose as the author tells her own story of heartache and delight.
