“I’ve long maintained that the American lawn
is one of the greatest mass brainwashings of all time.
How we all voluntarily signed up
to spend untold hours growing and cutting
a nonnative 
monoculture of green
which we lace with poisons
to kill plants and insects
never ceases to amaze.”
~ Bill Heavey
