Turning Lawns into Native Landscapes

http://www.naturalawakeningsmag.com/images/cache/cache_9/cache_3/cache_e/Eco-Yards-47f58e39.jpeg?ver=1489516915&aspectratio=1.7353579175705

by Lisa Kivirist and John D. Ivanko

“Traditional turf lawns are an ecological nightmare,” says John Greenlee, author of The American Meadow Garden, who notes that most monoculture turf lawns never even get used.

His company, Greenlee and Associates, in Brisbane, California, designs residential and other meadows throughout the U.S. as an engaging alternative. Many other appealing options likewise use native plants appropriate to the local climate. For instance, replacing Kentucky bluegrass, Bermuda grass or another non-native species with natives can deliver drought resistance and lower irrigation needs; eliminate any need for fertilizers or toxic pesticides; reduce or eliminate labor-intensive and often polluting mowing and edging; enhance the beauty of a home; and attract birds, butterflies and other wildlife.

Create a Home Yoga Practice

HAR_2017-04_Article_Yoga_Center_Create_Home_Practice

by Kathy McCoy, RYT-200

“Nothing replaces the home practice,” says 25-year yoga veteran Rodney Yee. “Listening is the practice of yoga; it's so important to go into your own body and ask it to be your teacher. It is a time when you can find your own rhythm. It is where the genuine knowledge arises.”

Doing yoga at home is considered a vital part of deepening a personal practice. While it may be intimidating to attempt a practice without the guidance of an instructor or a weekly class, one doesn’t need to be a super yogi to create a home yoga practice.

“Traditional turf lawns are an ecological nightmare.” – John Greenlee, author of The American Meadow Garden

Spring is in the air and this month we have two special features perfect for the season. The first is about ecological landscaping and it discusses alternatives to the traditional lawn, which you’ll learn isn’t ecologically sound and is usually underutilized for the expense incurred and the environmental impacts created.

Sharon Puszko, Ph.D., founder of the Daybreak Geriatric Massage Institute, in Indianapolis, teaches and certifies massage therapists working in assisted living, long-term care and memory care facilities. She relates, “These individuals appreciate not only the physiological benefits of massage but also having a therapist touch and address them by their names. A 105-year-old woman jokes, ‘Now that they’ve figured out how to keep us alive for so long, they don’t know what to do with us. Thank God for massage therapy.’”

by Aimee Hughes

“I’ve run in cities, rural areas and suburbs. I’ve run while deployed to military bases in the Middle East, in cities on four continents, in blazing heat and winter snowstorms,” says Maria Cicio, a licensed professional counselor candidate and marathoner in Grove, Oklahoma. “I’ve been running regularly for 25 years, mostly injury-free, and have found what works best for me.”
