"The American lawn represents the worst of the United States, wasteful, vain and full of shit. After all, lawns need fertilizer – which in America comes mixed with herbicides that kill off local plants and pollinators".


It's time for the mono-species, water and pesticide-guzzling lawn to go, along with alll the other environmentally destructive trappings of middle-class conspicuous consumption that have come to characterise the English garden and its exported variants, as in the US lawn (best study of which still being Paul Robbin's 2007 Lawn People).
