Indoors, Outdoors, and In Your Neighborhood

What can I plant instead of grass?

The list of alternatives to grass is long and does not include gravel! Several even fall into the “no mow” category. How about a low-growing groundcover like Asiatic jasmine (Jasmine minima) that does well in sun or shade? Or sun-loving perennial peanut, sunshine mimosa, and dune sunflower. Or you can use a grass-like plant such as liriope or flax lily. Or create one or more landscape beds bordering a meandering pathway and fill those beds with hardy shrubs like juniper and coontie, or native wildflowers that attract butterflies and bees. Or create an outdoor patio with flagstones or brick pavers, and maybe an arbor with a fragrant flowering vine. Or… you get the picture: The possibilities are endless! DOWNLOAD GUIDE
