I have three lawns… sorry
Please, Don’t Plant A Lawn
acres are currently covered in turf grass.
17 Million gallons of oil are spilled trying to maintain it per year.
5 billion dollars is spent on fossil fuel derived fertilizers per year.
30-60 percent of potable water is used on lawns. (It varies by the city)
This is 60 million acre-feet
of water per year. That is enough water to cover 60,000,000 acres in one foot of water.
40-50 Million Americans have allergies related to grass, but they still spend water and money keeping it alive!
According to the UN Water Cooperation Project, “783 million people do not have access to clean water and almost 2.5 billion do not have access to adequate sanitation.”
