Introductions And What To Do With Brown Lawns

Introductions And What To Do With Brown Lawns

In this first episode of The Earth Friendly Homeowner Podcast we discuss our personal journey and the reason we started this website, blog and podcast.

Why did you want to create this podcast?

We also talk about what is next for the podcast and topics we’ll be covering in the future.

G3 Green Gardens Group teaches homeowners and professionals the Watershed Wise Landscape approach to landscaping. Check out the calendar of homeowner classes. Sheri and Diane both teach classes for G3 and there are several other amazing instructors. We highly recommend you take a class (it is free) if you are in Southern California.

The first set of podcasts will answer the typical questions homeowners like you ask us again and again.

My lawn is brown, what do I do?

  • Let’s take a big picture look: Why lawn in yards? The History of Lawns in America

  • How healthy soil solves environmental problems
