Looking at any of the well-tended gardens next to my home is breathtaking. Gardening is an old practice and there are reasons why you need to practice gardening often. Maybe that is the driving force to my numerous rants in the area of cultivation in the various blogs.
However, for those who understand me, they will know that the reason why I don’t do a lot of lawns is that of their intensiveness and with little returns to show. In fact, talking of natural gardening may not strike the right code but worth trying.
In my entire endeavor’s, I have never like taking care of lawns as much as I do with my garden. For a fact, the different opinion on the lawns as environmentally unfriendly, water wasters and even the fact that lawn mowers are pollutants will help support my loathing for lawns.
Replace your Lawn!
Most people in the existing setup would rather prefer to practice gardening rather than go the whole hog of having to contend with the laborious lawn. It may not be a natural process as some people are traditionally attached to their gardens.
The temptation to reduce the garden space rises by the day with the need to create more garden spaces. Most reform-oriented individuals like me are of the opinion that getting gardeners more at work and reducing the activities on the lawns is the best remedy t the whole debacle.
We are likely to benefit from the resurgence of healthy lifestyles with better food on our diets with gardening. Get going, plant some few flowers in the yard and begin the process, it may just be the beginning of the end of the boring lawns.
All the above are not the fundamental reasons why gardening is preferred, there are lawn mowers used on the gardens as well with minimal effects, the reality is park management is not my thing. Most of us would not wish to take the usual stand of perfectionism though gardening has some of the following benefits;
Gardening Brings Renewal
The amounts of wastelands are getting bigger and bigger in countries like the United States. The majority of these deserts comprise lawns. Gardening is usually an organized way of planning and making these garden come back just needs some touch of gardening.
Gardening is Fun

Most of the gardeners are active, unlike some of the lawn owners who do not usually do things for themselves. In the same sense, the fun part of it creates a lot of interest in the activity, which in turn has assisted many lawns into renewal with mixed gardening taking the queue.
With the current crop of flowers, the look on most of the lawns is changing from the dull grass look to the mix of flower and grass. It is this that has made many people start reducing the amount of spaces occupied by meadows.
Gardening is Cost Effective
The intensive nature of lawns may not be comparable to the gardening. Most of the traditional garden requires the owner to have a steady supply of water and other requirements, unlike the case with gardening whose organic form has lately made the whole thing cheaper and less labor intensive.
In as much as that belief is true, the fact that the lawn has the use of lawn mowers make them cost tremendously in comparison to the work you may want to do in the gardens. Some of the plants you may have in the backyard can also make do in the kitchen as food cutting down the budget, unlike the grass lawns.
Gardening Creates Natural Harmony
It is not surprising that gardening is referred to as natural unlike the case with the lawn, the chemical nature of the park and the heavy use of lawn mowers make them cause lots of environmental degradation.
Gardening also allows for the use of organic components while the beauty adds some taste to the feel of the environment with less machinery in use.
Gardens Brings Out the Human Side
The interesting aspect that gardens portray is enough to make them the best to have around. The encouragement of natural diversity is what humans are meant to be. On the part of lawns, the plastic look they portray is enough to scare ant form of nature on it.
Gardening is Fulfilling
Many of us dream of practicing something you love. The non-rigid manner of gardening brings out the artistic self we portray, which is enough to bring fulfillment on the gardener.The rate at which the overall home outlooks are changing necessities the need to have better practices aimed at enabling sustainability within the homes.
Gardening provides that opportunity to the gardeners unlike what we see with the lawns, get going. All these set the right basis for regular gardening.
