“The origin of Jordan’s Branch, now covered by development, apparently lies about 1½ miles west of Willow Lawn near St. Christopher’s School. Some people in that area once called the stream Tiber Creek. It runs almost entirely in underground pipes until it emerges at that Broad Street culvert by a green “Jordan’s Branch” sign.”


“Society needs to adjust its cultural norms on lawn aesthetics. For the health of the planet, and for our own health, we need to start letting nature dictate how we design our outdoor spaces.”


“There are 40.5 million acres of lawn in the United States, more than double the size of the country’s largest national forest. We disconnect ourselves from wildlife habitat loss by viewing it as a problem caused by industry and agriculture. But habitat loss isn’t a problem happening out there somewhere; it’s happening in our own back yards.”
