Favorite Facts About Lawn Alternatives

Are you still a little shocked by the death of lawns in record numbers cross California? Water conservation has adopted some extreme tactics in the last few years. Because the really don't have a choice. If you're thinking about replacing the grass here's a few good things to know.

Groundcover Lawns like California native succulent Phylla nodiflora are common lawn replacements in other parts of the world like Japan but are just becoming fashionable here in California

Native Lawns are awesome. Just be aware they have seasonal dormancy cycles. Most get brown patches in the peak of summer while Buffalo Grass (Bouteloua gracilis) gets patchy in winter. California lawn grass breeders are working hard to create new fully green low-water options but it'll be a few years

Artifical Turf exacerbates climate heating and creates huge amounts of non-recyclable plastic - think 20 water bottles per sq.ft. - so don't use it on a large scale. And it's on it's way to being outlawed in many parts of the world due to the toxicity level of the microplastics it generates. Keep turf areas as small as physically possible when needed.

Part Shade helps your lawn areas seriously reduce their water needs and enhance greenery. Plant open canopied shade trees at the edges of lawns or utilize existing shade in your yard wherever possible.

A Little About California Landscape History

Log it, drain it, graze it about sums up the 19th century's treatment of California's landscapes. After clearcutting the world's largest redwood forest - which once stretched from Crescent City nearly all the way to Los Angeles - the federal government paid sheep farmers to graze most of the state. Causing severe environmental destruction. The paving and redirection of many large native watersheds further desert-ified many areas of wild land. Today the landscapes we are most familiar with - large expanses of golden rolling hills with a few live oaks studding the sky - are still effected by cattle grazing, which decimates native grass and wildflower populations. And suppresses smaller and midsized understory shrubs.

What does this mean for our Home & Urban Landscapes?

While much of California's land & water continues to be used for producing more than half of the country's produce (and a whole lot of Canada's too) our home landscapes can offer a powerful antidote to the industrial usage of our wild ones. Up until recently more than 5% of California's ecosystem was comprised of lawn grass. With recent water shortages and new state mandates that is on the way to change. Whether your planting native grass or wildflowers, replacing old lawns and outdated ornamentals with habitat-repairing or water-saving plants means that the historic beauty of California gets to be built right at home.

Plants help create a sense of place. And a sense of sanctuary when we need it most: at the end of a hard day, at a moment when we crave quiet or in any time of overwhelm when the buzz of the human world has tired us out. California's huge trove of fascinating native plants is sought after by botanist's all over the world over. Some species are even easier to buy in UK nurseries than in our own local ones. Create an oasis for yourself in the landscape with plants that you can feel good about. And that need less care and water than what's come before.

Founder's Story

How the deep roots of California's home gardens & wild landscapes shaped her

"My mother is really my main garden expert. She and her best friend when I was growing up loved to collect and try out different plants. Thanks to the Mediterranean climate of California being so flexible, there was A LOT to explore. We had a huge jacaranda tree in the front yard that would rain purple all over the walkway. There was a beautiful saucer magnolia and a big black cherry plum that I would eat the sour fruits off of sometimes. And a majestic Albizia (floss silk tree) surrounded by mock oranges and calla lilies near the pool. That was one of the special flowering trees we’d planted to honor someone close to us passing away. When I got older we got a water lily pond that I loved spending time with. And the whole ½ acre garden was ringed by Australian and African trees.

On the weekends I’d go on little hikes with my dog and my dad in the big prickly pear and mustard stands on the hills. Or along the creek beds where my friend from down the street and I could catch tadpoles and crawdads. Once in awhile I’d go camping with girl scouts up at lake arrowhead or along the coast near Solvang. My dad was always a wealth of stories too, having grown up in Southern California when his sister still rode her horse to the Pharmacy and the beach boys played on the sand in San Clemente. He spent a lot of his own childhood hiking in Bishop, the Sierras and San Gregorio. His father (my grandfather) worked in suburban real estate advertising, so my dad’s first job was to put up signs on tight schedules at the edges of the old wild walnut, avocado or oak groves all around Southern California that were on their way to being turned into housing tracts.

I'm fascinated by the evolving landscapes and histories of California - what stood here before us and why - and, more importantly, what will come after."
