"The typical suburban landscape, and especially turf grass, is a heavy consumer of fertilizers, insecticides, and weedkillers, which can run off or percolate into our water supply. Lawns are the biggest domestic consumer of water, to say nothing of energy (our own and that which powers our mowers!)." — Jim Wilson, Landscaping with Wildflowers
