With St. Patty’s Day just a leprechaun leap away, March is a perfect time to rethink green – with our expansive lawns, that is. Most of us are a bit obsessed by that sleek, plush look of grass and we typically pay a high price in water and chemicals to keep it looking weed free and pristine. Allowing your lawn to go ‘Au naturel’ or finding a new purpose for that open green space may be in the cards for your property this spring. It’s just a quick garden reminder from the wonderful world of Permaculture. You can achieve the true green in so many healthy ways! (P.S. - One tidbit of advice: for any grass areas, seed with Fescue instead of Bluegrass; it requires a 1/3 less water and nitrogen, amongst other things.)
On that note, this week’s post ends with an Irish Blessing. “Green are the hills of Ireland and green they will always stay. Warm are the blessings wished for you and they’ll always be that way.” Have a safe and happy St. Patty’s day.
