Would you like to use less water but still yearn for that patch of green? Tired of mowing and fertilizing?
Palo Alto Demonstration Garden has been experimenting with lawn alternatives that use 50-60 percent less water than a traditional lawn but still provide you with that spot of green.
Come and see what we have been doing. UC Master Gardener Martha Carpenter will explain sun, shade, and water requirements and discuss how you might use some of these alternatives in your own yard. We'll also tour the water-wise garden and discuss ornamental plants that might complement your new lawn alternatives.
