freedom lawn
 n.— «These figures are published in a new book, Redesigning the American Lawn, by three concerned environmentalists from Yale Univeristy, Herbert Bormann, Diana Balmori and Gordon Geballe. They propose “freedom lawns,” allowing natural and unrestricted growth of grasses, clover, wild flowers and other broad-leafed plants that lawn-obsessed people regard as weeds.» —“Suburbia spurns the lawn police” by Peter Pringle in U.S. Independent (London, England) June 21, 1993.
