Grass You Don't Have to Mow — Intro to No-Mow Grass

By October 9, 2007

Follow me on:

You remember having to mow the grass in the blazing heat this past summer, right? Well, I don't mean to resurrect unpleasant memories, but, for a moment, hold that image in your mind -- just long enough to make you sizzle! Now ask yourself, Wouldn't it be great to have a "no-mow grass" for a lawn? Far-fetched? Maybe not. Check out this article on the science behind no-mow grass. No-mow grass just might be a fixture in your yard someday.

Sorry, but the blog to which you’re referring simply links to someone else’s article. Consequently, I know no more about such specifics than you do. I suggest trying to contact the seller.

Many possibilities here, depending on conditions and on what you want a ground cover to do besides…well, besides covering ground! For example, some people use ajuga, although it can be invasive.

Mike Monahan,

I have the same needs for a similar project. What did you end up using? How did it work?
