Beautiful natural spring time lawns
Every spring I am shocked how many people spend money to create a toxic environment
to have boring lawns. A toxic envirenment made of glyphosate, fertilizer and weekly
grass cutting creates this completely artificial lawn.
Bees don't find anything but toxins in these pure green mono-cultures
I love my lawn when it's in full bloom and I still
don't understand how people want to have a boring green only lawn.
I have recently asked some young children which kind of garden they liked more. Pure grass or a lawn
with flowers. All agreed that the colorful lawns with flowers are more beautiful.
To me this is a clear indication that the marketing of big chemical companies is working. While growing up we learn over time how a garden must look like. Pictures
in magazines and advertisement influence us over time such that we finally want to buy these products
that create a totally artificial environment. Glyphosate, which is needed
to create very pure grass only laws, is suspected to be a contributor to allergies.
Tiny amounts of Glyphosate cause already severe damage to the gut Biome of animals and humans alike.
This is where we let toddlers play. People pay for the chemicals to create this "green garden" and then they pay for
the medication to remedy a life long allergy that might have started in early childhood. Crazy, isn't it?
A natural lawn is more robust, not easily damaged, healthier and cheaper. One would think that it
is an obvious decision what kind of lawn people would choose... no.
Did you know that dandelion leave are edible with a number of health benefits? Dandelion root makes
a good tea. Yet there are entire towns in Canada where dandelions are banned from front yards. Crazy.
Let's stop the madness and allow your law to be natural and beautiful. You can still keep it short if you want to. It will allow short flowers such as wild strawberries, violets and early snow glories to grow. Don't put poison into your garden. It will eventually hit you back. We are all part of nature. We are not outside of it or above it.
