Rome may have a different look in coming years if the city’s council manages to put its new lawn mowing plan into action: using cows and sheep to trim the grass.

According to, Pinuccia Montanari, Rome’s environment commissioner said an experiment with sheep in Caffarella Park was working well and would be expanded.

Rome’s city council is apparently in debt and is considering a variety of options to cut costs. Rome has one of the largest urban green spaces in Europe, measuring 44 million sqm. “Lacking resources and personnel, we have tried to find all possible solutions,” said Pinuccia.

The farming lobby has welcomed the idea, according to the article. “With 50,000 sheep being bred in Rome's municipality, the capital can count on a real army of natural lawnmowners.”
