As I investigated the problem on our little pond, it became clear that lawns (and lawn care) were a primary culprit. The deeper I dug, the more compelling case for change became.

So, I set out to save our pond and in the process, found a solution to save our waters and save 75% or more of maintenance and lawn watering.

Americans are addicted to high-maintenance lawn care. Protecting our waters depends critically on changing how we care for our lawns.

With input from independent grass seed scientists, I tested thousands of seed mixes to create a low-maintenance solution. Once established, Pearl’s Premium can reduce lawn cutting to once every 4-6 weeks, save homeowners at least 75% of lawn watering and the grass stays greener year-round without the use of chemical fertilizers.

Our roots then can reach 12-14 inches deep, tapping into naturally-occurring moisture and nutrients to produce a healthy, barefoot soft lawn.
