More InformationShow full item record
This work studies the effects of turf grass surrounding rural housing. It examines degree of turf management, the human relationship with nature and turf grass, aesthetics of nature and turf grass, principles of ecological design, cultural connections and values of the land, and finally the psychological responses to turf grass and natural landscapes. This research suggests that turf grass disconnects the user to their land both physically and aesthetically. Along with disconnection, it suggests that turf grass disrupts habitat.
