saving the climate, Royally

Everyone can see the irony in sprawling suburbs named after the thing they replaced: "Meadowlands," "Headon Forest," and such, but the green thumbs at the Royal Botanical Gardens in Burlington/Hamilton are doing their part to bring some ideas about nature back to the suburbs with their "No Mow, No Blow, No H20" display at the Laking Garden.
There is no doubt that the climate changing Carbon Dioxide-saturated atmosphere is being fuelled by human activities, and yes, your gardening practices have something to do with contributing to the problem.
So as a healing step in the right direction, check out these alternatives to monoculture lawns with an eye on aesthetics and the climate we all share.
