Tired of grass?
A great alternative is low-growing urban clover, a no-maintenance lawn alternative that can be beautified with wild flowers.
While grass has long been the ground cover of choice, this water- and labour-intensive plant has an easy replacement - urban clover! Urban Seedling's urban clover is a popular lawn replacement alternative.
Here are some of its perks:
- It only grows between 10-20 cm (4-6"), and requires no mowing beyond the first few times.
- Clover doesn't require fertilizing and is incredibly resistant to drought, so also doesn't need to be watered.
- It is cold resistant, so becomes a lovely green colour long before and long after grass does.
- Finally, clover provides food and habitat for beneficial insects, which will help your vegetable garden flourish!

*note: establishing a clover mono-culture requires excavating all existing turf, setting up a temporary irrigation system, and up to two seasons of return visits for weeding and re-seeding. It therefore costs approximately double the cost of sodding with grass.
