There’s an alternative to the green desert
Designed by Aaron Marubbi
This border is designed to make the visitor question whether a traditional, pristine green lawn really is worth the effort. Instead of weekly mowing, what about letting it go wild?
Using meadow native and pollen rich garden plants to increase biodiversity, this border encourages wildlife to the garden. The ‘pouring’ petrol can spewing petrol into the lawn visually illustrates non-renewable fuels needed to maintain a suburban lawn. To maintain a monoculture of grass requires regular cutting and petrol.
The cultivated meadow alternative to the lawn will be a rich tapestry of plant species attracting all sort of pollinators to show that diversity is far better for wildlife than a monoculture of lawn.
