Lawn Gone! giveaway and my guest post at Garden Rant


“Lawns are for kids, right? After all, they need that big, green carpet to enjoy the outdoors. Would it be an exaggeration to say it borders on neglect not to keep a lawn for your children or grandchildren to play on?”

So begins my guest post today at Garden Rant. I hope you’ll pop over to read my “rant” and — whether you agree or disagree — leave a comment about whether kids need a lawn or not. Bonus: by leaving a comment on my Garden Rant post you’ll be entered in a giveaway for a copy of my book, Lawn Gone! Low-Maintenance, Sustainable, Attractive Alternatives for Your Yard.
