I published my own way of keeping a lawn nice and green and also using recylcing techniques of old grass clippings.
Its a process called mulching basically reusing all of your old grass cuttings instead of throwing them away the results are second to none.

It is an ancient art that is created around the principles of arrangement and placement of different elements to create a spiritual balance. When looking at garden water fountains and greenscaping for the purposes of Feng Shui, it is important to keep the elements in mind.

The need for environmental awareness is necessary. I think we are moving away from tidy, manicured lawns, but you’re right, we still have a long way to go. It will take more than the three R’s to change people’s behavior, but we all need to do our part.

For example we must change local ordinances so homeowners are not limited to planting ornamental turfgrass. City officials are sadly in need of awareness and education. Instead they rely on the old model, mowing and cutting every green thing in site because it “looks tidy.”

We have a long, long, way to go in making important changes in attitude and behavior. At this stage in the game, the 3 R’s strike me as rather quaint, but not nearly enough to create the progress we need.

First, Rehabilitation for their land jurisdiction, secondly, Rehabilitation of the neighborhood and the thirdly to Recommendate “Landlord” do not there. I cries when compare my village between now and 45 years ago. We have “Land use Act-1963″, but , ago, when bamboos drained the water from Hill-up to bottom (reduce & reuse?), now is lost, when the fish ate my feces in the fishpond (recycle?) also too. I think we need one ‘R’ again : “Revolution”…..
