Lawns created without grass at inception have benefits over and above the ecosystem services currently associated with traditional lawns. They require far less management, less mowing resulting in low energy requirements and fewer emissions, attract more pollinating insects, and create a lawn ecosystem that is biodiversity rich. This book provides historical context to non-grass-based lawns (tapestry lawns); includes basic ecological background on how the format functions; and details how to create and maintain a grass-free lawn. It represents a next-step development for lawns within the framework of current ecological horticulture.
