Engine of Providence

Low Tara Turf, below.  From 1st meeting adored its charm, character, function.  Here, perfectly balanced with formal pruning, canopy, open, woodland beyond.
.
Did you immediately understand all these things too?

Oddly, decades after falling deeply for Tara Turf, an epiphany.
.
More than 'aesthetics', pure function.  Engine of Providence.
.
Tara Turf next to canopy/understory are maximum pollinator habitat.
.
My adoration/desire no different than the attraction a bee has for flowers.  None.
.
Life at its most basic.
.
Tara Turf, indeed.  Drama. Bees have known, since bees have been.
.
Maximum pollinator habitat can increase crop yields by 80%, do the math.

TARA TURF

TARA TURF IS UNIQUE TO EACH REGION. 
.
TARA TURF, in GA, is a mix of grass-moss-clover-mondo-ajuga-dandelion--mazus-and what the wind blows in. Add crocus, dwarf daffodil, thyme if desired.
.
TARA TURF is mowed at 1-2-3 heights, below. Beneficial to wildlife, organic, sustainable, fragrant, low maintenance, eco and only uses rainwater.

.
Studying landscapes in Europe I noticed, NO LAWNS. TARA TURF is used commercially and residentially.
.
New neighborhoods lack smell and mixed insects. Did you know there are more good bugs than bad bugs?
.
Old neighborhoods smell like my childhood. Clover, grass, bugs, dirt, all the good things.
.
Most new neighborhoods have deed restrictions outlawing TARA TURF.

.
The outlaw label, against TARA TURF, should be amusing but the stakes are too high.
.
The cost of mow-blow-go is too high. Lawn mowers are not regulated. One hour of lawn mowing is equal to 11 hours of driving a car.
.
Fertilizer, insecticide & fungicide kill machorizal fungi, and are toxic to groundwater.
.

And drain into groundwater. Atrazine in our drinking water was on the front page of NY Times 8-23-09. TARA TURF uses no chemicals.
.
Yes, I design lawns. Preferring TARA TURF but using what deed restrictions require.
