Why has no one proposed nationwide abandonment of residential lawns?
Considering that residential lawns are an environmental atrocity in multiple ways, why hasn’t anyone proposed a nationwide movement to let them grow wild? Basically ask everyone to stop cutting, stop watering, stop fertilizing, and stop applying pesticides. Let nature take over. Let the best-adapted species survive. Even if only a small percentage of homeowners did so initially, the environmental benefits would be tremendous.
