Lawns and the alternatives

Traditional lawn, synthetic lawn, native grasses, and drought-tolerant blends ― the pros and cons

UPKEEP

Traditional lawn As any lawn owner will tell you, maintaining a lush carpet of green takes a lot of time and attention.

Synthetic lawn None to speak of, except for pulling it up and disposing of it if you decide to try something else.

Native grasses Require very little maintenance and no fertilizers once they’re established.

New drought-tolerant blends Practically none if you leave them unmown.
