David Hedges-Gower, Chairman of The Lawn Association, highlights the critical need for a shift in mindset regarding traditional lawn care practices. “Most people are led down the path of sports-turf thinking, which often results in the use of grass species prone to failure, necessitating frequent over-seeding,” explains Hedges-Gower. “This unsustainable approach not only harms the environment but also drains resources. The future lies in green and sustainable lawn care practices, which prioritise the use of appropriate grass species, doesn’t use polymer-coated fertilisers, and eliminates the need for pesticides.”

This collaborative endeavour between The Lawn Association and the University of Oxford signifies a collective dedication to fostering a culture of innovation and sustainability in lawn care practices. By embracing these progressive principles, both institutions stand as trailblazers in propelling the adoption of environmentally responsible measures that not only benefit the environment but also elevate the aesthetic allure and durability of green landscapes.
