Creating a lawn and killing off the flora once there, places the responsibility of caring for the animals that relied on those plants on you. It can be easy to look over the swath of land you cleared and forget about the many beings that resided and passed through there, especially since many of these critters are impossible to spot from afar. Furthermore, is it that big of a deal if you lay down some turfgrass on your small lawn? We already conserve millions of acres across the country and world, so it doesn’t make a difference if one more lawn is added to the ecological equation, right?
