Grass is not the same as seed Put your hands up be kind shirt. If you put down seed at this time of year it will rot if you don’t believe me try it. Grass can’t grow from nothing. You obviously don’t own a lawn because you don’t seem to understand the effort it takes to maintain a nice one. Also lawns are very important habitats for insects and worms and as such a source of food for many birds. Grasses are often the food for many foraging animals as well and they bind soils and prevent erosion. Grass is one of the most important plants on earth. Why climate change hardcores aren’t listened to, raging about every plastic cup and CO2 emission they see coming from others, but brushing off any damage they do themselves.
Actually lawns are pretty terrible for biodiversity Put your hands up be kind shirt and are only beneficial as corridors and not as a habitat. There is not an erosion problem in Bristol and if anything the churning of the mud and the sound created by many footsteps may have actually made it easier for birds to predate on worms. Grass is also I pioneering plant and can be grown in harsh environments, and even resown at a low cost.
