Native Grass Instead of Lawn

Traditionally, most Americans use green grass to cover their lawns. These green grasses usually need a lot of water to stay green. Instead of planting a green lawn, plant native grasses that naturally grow in the region or general area where you live. These grasses will use less water, be easier to care for and look naturally beautiful.
