Did you know...
Conventionally managed lawns release roughly 4x more carbon than they sequester, according to a study published by University of California Irvine.
According to a 2015 EPA analysis, running a gas-powered leaf blower for 30 minutes releases the same amount of carbon as driving a pickup truck from Texas to Alaska!
Lawns that don't have any flowering species are void of food sources for vital pollinators such as threatened native bees.
Approximately 85% of stormwater runs off of low-mown turf grass, which then doesn't replenish moisture in the soil, and means you need to irrigate more (which means more $$)!
We don’t use any chemicals.
We only use electric equipment.
We manage lawn for diversified species, including broadleaf flowering plants, like clover.
We use organic amendments and natural fertilizers like compost tea.
We work with the seasons, and have a proactive, ecological understanding of disease & pests.

Shades of Green Permaculture is a regenerative landscape design, build and education firm located in Atlanta. We specialize in edible and ecological landscaping. EcoLawns Atlanta is a branch of Shades of Green Permaculture.
We are a certified B-Corp, and woman owned business. Every outdoor space we create contributes to protecting biodiversity; growing food, medicine, and pollinator habitat; building soil, and restoring the water cycle. Your garden, no matter the size, can have a positive impact.
Most gardens are designed to be high input systems⏤water-intensive, chemically-dependent, and high maintenance. Instead of toxic, resource-heavy conventional landscapes, we build health from the ground up by transitioning landscapes to become ecologically-sound, healthy ones. Our work is to reconcile the human built environment and the natural world, creating a conversation between the two that is life-giving.
