A Brief History of Lawns
The Middle English word launde initially referred to a glade or opening in the forested areas, yet later meant stretches of land that were artificial glades. Likely, the earliest yards were the meadows around medieval palaces in France and Britain, so watches had an unhindered perspective on people coming to the palace. Whether they be threats or guests. The term additionally meant the town “commons”, the glades shared or held “in common” where residents could graze both sheep and cows. These hooved garden trimmers kept the grass short, improving the soil as they munched.
In the sixteenth Century Renaissance, gardens were intentionally developed by the well off in both France and England, however, they were almost certain planted with chamomile or thyme rather than with grass. Both of these ground covers make magnificent alternatives to grass in current yards.
Firmly shorn grass gardens previously arose in seventeenth-century England at the homes of well-off landowners. While sheep were still pastured on numerous such park-lands, landowners progressively relied upon human work to tend the grass nearest to their homes. Before lawnmowers, only the rich could bear to enlist the numerous hands expected to sickle and weed the grass, so a garden was a characteristic of riches and status.
