Abstract

The goal of this manual is to share a vision of lawns based on the results of the transdisciplinary LAWN project “Lawn as ecological and cultural phenomenon.
Searching for sustainable lawns in Sweden” (2013-2016) funded by Formas.
First, we present the results of this project and discuss existing lawn alternatives from Europe and North America. We then analyse and discuss experiences in Sweden, including our own experimental sites at SLU Ultuna Campus in Uppsala. We also provide practical advice on establishing and managing different types of lawn alternatives suitable for Swedish conditions.
