USA Today: Lawns Are Out of Fashion
Some examples of why I love this article... It compares lawn maintenance to "pushing a boulder up a hill" and makes statements like "The best approach is for all of us to start thinking of lawns as a fashion -- a fashion like wearing the feathers of rare birds in hats was once a fashion. Fashions can change when enough people decide they are ridiculous or wasteful... we should start treating the presence of a vast, green, cropped grass lawn in the middle of summer...as a weird and antisocial thing."
