Health Fusion: Turning a backyard into a natural prairie

Are you ready to forget mowing your lawn? Try turning it into a natural prairie. In this episode of NewsMD's "Health Fusion," Viv Williams takes you to her friend's home where a he transformed a suburban yard into a diverse prairie.

We are part of The Trust Project.

When my friend, Dr. Shaun Dowdy, is not busy saving lives, you might find him in his backyard where he created a magical, natural prairie. What was once a large lawn that required a lot of mowing is now a treasure filled with flowers, grasses, bees and other critters.

In the process of researching how to restore land back into a prairie, Dowdy has become quite an expert. Listen and watch as he takes us on a tour.
