Joey Santore, a blue-collar schmuck from Chicago who left a career at the railroad to pursue a lifetime studying botany and educating others via his cult-hit YouTube channel Crime Pays But Botany Doesn’t, along with his best friend from Chicago, bicycle mechanic and punk rock banjoist AL SCORCH, are back slaughtering as many water-guzzling lawns as they can. It’s a garden makeover show hosted by plant lovers who hate garden makeover shows. 

Timing is imperative, as the nation faces a game-changing global drought, lawns are an ecological nightmare growing right under our noses. Their mission: To carry out a turficidal killing spree and leave a trail of pollinator-friendly, native plant gardens in their wake.

The drastic measure of removing a lawn reinforces the messaging of scientists, conserves indigenous plant species, and additionally has the following benefits:

  • Water conservation: Lawns require a significant amount of water to maintain, especially in areas with dry climates. Removing a lawn can reduce water usage and help conserve this precious resource.
  • Environmental benefits: Lawns are often maintained with pesticides and fertilizers, which negatively impact the environment. Removing a lawn helps reduce the use of these chemicals and promotes a healthier ecosystem.
  • Cost savings: Maintaining a lawn is expensive, especially if you hire someone to do it. Removing a lawn saves money on water bills, maintenance costs, and landscaping services.
  • Increased biodiversity: Lawns are monocultures that do not provide habitat for many species of plants and animals. By removing a lawn and planting a diverse array of native plants, you increase biodiversity and support local wildlife. Once established, native plant gardens take care of themselves.
  • Aesthetics: While some people enjoy the look of a well-manicured lawn, others prefer a more natural or landscaped look. Removing a lawn provides an opportunity to create a unique and visually appealing outdoor space.
The KILL YOUR LAWN movement is growing and Empty Quarter Studios is out front, capturing the stories of first-time lawn killers and witnessing incredible yard makeovers,”,” said Executive Producer David Madison. “No other production company killed lawns this year using a catapult, a harpoon and several pounds of Old Bay seasoning.”
“The fact that Kill Your Lawn was picked up for a second season is a testament to the entertainment value of our show, our terrific talent and the important message,” says EQS’ Billy Sprague.
