On The Survive and Thrive Boomer Guide, Rita R. Robison, consumer journalist, writes about an Ohio couple who weren’t allowed to have a natural lawn. The St. Albans Township threatened to send someone to mow the lawn accompanied by the police.

Robison, who’s written about “freedom lawns,” thinks its O.K. to let your lawn turn in to a meadow.
