Zoning ordinances will specifically prohibit the planting of lawns within the greenbelt.
Lawns, or areas planted in turf grass, allow stormwater to run off at higher rates than areas planted with trees and shrubs. This higher run off rate can allow storm water to reach the Lake before being allowed to percolate and increase the potential for shoreline erosion.
