Welcome to Grass-free lawns

Based on a four year PhD research project conducted at the University of Reading, UK, grass-free lawns represent a fresh approach to the use of lawn space.

By excluding grasses, other suitable plant species can be used in a way that is similar but refreshingly different from conventional turf lawns.

Research indicates that grass-free lawns can produce up to 90% more flowers, contain over 25% more invertebrate life, and support up to ten times as many visits from twice as many pollinator species as wildflower turf. Mowing is reduced by up to two thirds, rainfall can be absorbed up to twice as fast as a turf lawn and grass-free lawns need no chemical additives.

More flowers, less mowing and no additives. What could be better than that?
