A brief history of lawns

Hundreds of years ago, lawns were used as green communal spaces to graze livestock, so it was very rare for a household to have a lawn of its own. Lawns grew in popularity amongst European aristocrats during the Middle Ages because the conditions were good for growing grass. They scarcely appeared in other countries or cultures around the world until they became influenced by Western culture.
