Save the bees… Kill your grass!

By , May 8, 2010

Ask not what your bees can do for your lawn, but what your lawn can do for your bees?

Pollinator gardens are a great way to create habitat and provide food for bees, butterflies and birds. ¬†With the help of fellow lab member and Supreme Gardener, Clement Kent, I am transforming my boring grass front yard to a native pollinator garden. ¬†Grass had it coming – it just sits there and does nothing, all the while consuming precious water and eating up fertilizers; don’t even get me started on the constant mowing!…

Clement, our green crusader, has setup a great blog to mark his quest in transforming Toronto’s lawns to beautiful pollinator gardens, check it out at

    Thanks for the plug, Amro! You’re going to have the greenest front yard in north Toronto…and I don’t mean grass!

    Isn’t Canadian weather wonderful? After a month of warm weather, we are predicted to get a frost tonight…oh well, the native perennials are all frost hardy.
