Years I planted white clover on my property - trying to be different, I guess (besides, long ago it used to be the go-to lawn grass).Never understood the lawn care mania, and I worked many years ago as a lawn chemical applicator, and in lawn maintenance (mowing).
I was amazed at people's attitudes. They paid us to come every month and spray chemicals on their lawns, all the while convinced the chemicals we used were deadly dangerous. I wanted to ask them why they got the service if they thought we were poisoning their children.
My back lawn is currently unmowed. I am waiting for the grass seeds to shed, and hoping to crowd out some of the less desirable weeds. My wife is unappreciative. Front lawn looks much more typically suburban, with fertilizer and some chemical weed control. I don't like it. Married life is compromises.
