Ron Myers's comments:
on Turf Wars
Over half my property is in mixed woods and is a good showcase of Northwest plants and animals. I have a fruit orchard and a fenced vegatable garden (deer and rabbits eat anything with a price tag that is unprotected). I want a certain amount of landscaped lawn with water features, etc.
I am all for putting in a lawn that is low maintenance and environmentally friendly. I have not been able to find such a lawn. The Seattle site talks of mixtures containing yarrow and low growth grasses. I like yarrow but it is not a native plant and neither are the grasses listed.
Who is going to provide us with a lawn mixture formulation that is made up of native grasses and plants that meets our needs for low maintenance and low impact on our environment?
I'd sure appreciate any help you can provide.
