Eric Fuselier presents on how lawns can be better managed to reduce their environmental impacts.
Lawns are estimated to cover 40 million acres in the United States. Each year in the United States, an estimated 325 trillion gallons of water, 90 million pounds of fertilizer, and 78 million pounds of pesticides are applied to lawns, impacting nearby wildlife and water resources. In this program you’ll learn about the history of the American lawn and how they came to dominate the suburban landscape, and how lawns can be better managed to reduce their environmental impacts. Tired of mowing? You'll also learn about alternatives to lawns that are less maintenance and more environmentally friendly.
