This is a great example of native landscaping — a gardening trend spreading across lawns near and far. Not only does it look amazing, but it’s also great news for all of us.
Every year in the United States, traditional lawns require almost 3 trillion gallons of water, 200 million gallons of gas for mowing, and 70 million pounds of pesticides, according to the Natural Resources Defense Council.
Even if you’re not ready to completely redo your yard, little changes have a huge impact. From clover lawns and vegetable gardens to wildflowers and xeriscaping, the benefits of natural yards are worth it.
The OP’s post was met with oodles of praise.
“Those are some happy plants,” one user commented.
“Love the clover pathway!” wrote another.
“So beautiful and inspiring!” said a third.
