Just wondered if anyone else doesn't bother with keeping up a bowling green, and has an alternative lawn?
I came across using mine in that way by accident, I killed a load of moss in early spring off the lawn but in it's place seems to have exploded with white clover and self heal .. which I hated at first but have grown to like!
It stays low, reducing the need to mow it much .. and there seems to be bees all over them. I mowed it yesterday but was really reluctant as I knew I was taking away that food source ... but I'm sure they'll all reflower .. they did last time in abundance.
The only downside to me is it obviously doesn't look as neat as a traditional grass lawn, but given I've got a 2 month old daughter the lawn will no doubt be trashed anyway
