Green and Clean
Our current model for managing tens of millions of acres of home lawns could be easily changed to a sustainable model. The use of short, no-mow grasses could save the U.S. tens of billions of dollars per year in maintenance costs.

This in turn could contribute to a decrease in the incidence of diseases which have been linked to exposure to toxins in the environment.
