Does your yard work for you or do you work for it? To be more specific, do you really need a big lawn? Is there more you could do with your property that would benefit the environment? Have you considered reducing the time and pollution generated by lawn mowing, not to mention expensive fertilization, pesticides, herbicides and bags of mulch? And what should you do with brush and leaves? Answers to such questions, can require a different way of seeing your yard and its value. To get more specifics, Sustainable Stow members toured four yards in Stow with Landscape Architect Casey-lee Bastien, an advocate for strategically rethinking how we manage our home landscapes.
