What Houzz contributors are saying:

Marianne Lipanovich added this to Lay of the Landscape: Natural Garden Style
You may not have a large yard, but that doesn't mean you can't have a meadow view. No-mow and low-mow grasses are designed to clump softly in waves, like those found in a wide expanse of open grasses, though I've heard them described as looking like the ocean or hair. Think four times a year rather than two times a week for mowing, and these grasses are generally drought tolerant. Low maintenance and natural — what's not to love?
6. Leave the mower in the shed. A beautiful close-cropped emerald green lawn has been a central feature of many traditional gardens in the past (now replicated in contemporary gardens with the use of plastic artificial grass).Creating the perfect lawn takes a lot of time, energy, fertilizer and water — all things that go against Slow Gardening principles. Leaving your grass to grow longer or including longer grass as part of your garden design will give you the benefits of saving on all these things while creating an environment for beneficial insects that will help with pollination around the garden.

Not all grasses have the water demands of typical turf. Drought-tolerant No-Mow Fine Fescue or Buffalo grass replaces a standard lawn behind this shingle-style home.
