Anyone who gardens and is halfway alert will eventually come to the conclusion that growing a lot of grass is a bad idea on many levels. So it makes sense that some of the best garden bloggers got together TODAY and blasted their opinions out into the blogosphere about lawns and the umpteen reasons to replace them. (For one, look how much better your yard can look!!)

If you are considering killing your water-hogging lawn, check out some of these posts. (I killed mine several years ago, and haven’t looked back.) This is some of the best advice, inspiration and tips you will ever hear. And amazing photos, too! Just click on the different names and listen up:

Evelyn Hadden : Lawn Reform.Org : Saint Paul, MN

    It's amazing how many gardeners think that a lawn is low maintenance, in fact it's the other way around. So many alternatives out there, and yes that includes decking :)

    You've probably already heard but Pam at Digging is writing a book about lawn alternatives. She has a new facebook page and has invited people to share their observations and ideas. My lawn is relatively small but I'd love to take it down to nothing…looking forward to reading through the GDRT posts to get some ideas!

    Thanks for the GDRT shout-out today, and for encouraging others to re-think their love affair with lawns!!
