Grass free lawn gets thumbs up from Dorchester mayor

The Mayor of Dorchester, Peter Mann, has announced his support for growing the first ‘grass free lawn’ in Dorchester’s Borough Gardens as the subject of the 2014/15 Mayoral Appeal.
In a project supported by Dorset Wildlife Trust (DWT), Dorchester Town Council, The Heritage Lottery Fund, and the Gardens Group, both wildlife and people are set to benefit from a lawn grown from a variety of different flowering plants, rather than grass.
