Ecological Lawn and Lawn Alternatives

 

In conjunction with, and as a result of tests conducted at Oregon State University, we are now offering several lines of ecology seed mixes that were created to reduce maintenance and resource utilization. Although not necessarily appropriate for all locations, these mixtures can enhance a site’s sustainability and reduce long term maintenance costs.

Eco Lawn

These ecological lawn mixtures combine dwarf grasses with low-growing herbaceous plants and clovers to produce a green cover with reduced mowing, fertilization and irrigation. The result is a low maintenance alternative to manicured turf. This is probably not a good choice for high profile areas on a property, but could be appropriate for perimeters and roadways.

 

Although these ecology mixes are not necessarily new, their use has not caught on as most have not been maintained properly. Although they require less maintenance, they will turn into ugly fields if not properly maintained. We are working on establishing those maintenance requirements to ensure these EcoLawns retain an appropriate appearance. Our goal is to save resources and money while keeping your property beautiful.

Sedum Lawn Alternative

We are also experimenting with lawn alternatives such as sedum that is used on green roofs.
