Citat fra W. George Schmid: "An Encyclopedia of Shade Perrenials" s.15. Timber press.
"Lawns, on the other hand, are biological deserts. Their wide-open discourages birds and other wildlife. There are no nesting spots, no places to burrow (except for moles, perhaps), and absolutely no placeo hide. The only critteres living in or under lawns are grubs, army worms, and other non-beneficial bugs. So we apply poison to be rid of them, thus releasing more toxins into our already afflicted environment and leaving nothing but a green but genuine wasteland called a lawn. Not even the insect pests are alive, and birds and other visiting wildlife eating their toxic remain get poisoned as well. This is not gardening either."
