Lawn naturalization consultation now open

March 17, 2023

The municipality is seeking public input about voluntary lawn and garden naturalization on private property.

Naturalization involves transforming a cultivated landscape, such as a lawn, into a more natural landscape. Natural landscapes feature native plants arranged to mimic naturally occurring habitat and provide myriad benefits to wildlife and pollinators.

Public consultation is needed to help the municipality identify any potential concerns prior to presenting a final report to Council. Public consultation will also help identify parts of the existing by-law that are overly restrictive and gauge public support for potential improvements to the by-law, such as allowing naturalized lawns and lawn alternatives. Click here to view the draft by-law.

An online survey is available on the County’s Have Your Say website. The public is encouraged to complete the survey to provide feedback that will help the County explore the possibility of allowing lawn naturalization and alternatives within the municipality.

The survey is available in different formats upon request. Paper copies are available at the County’s customer service desk at the Edward Building (Suite 103 – 280 Main Street, Picton) during office hours, and at the County libraries during operating hours. For more information, please contact 613.476.2148 extension 1023 or The survey closes March 31, 2023.

More information lawn naturalization is available on Have Your Say.

If you have questions or require further information, please contact Albert Paschkowiak, Environmental Services and Sustainability Supervisor, at 613.476.2148 extension 4004 or
