The Eddie Award is part of the Eddie and Ozzie Awards Gala in New York City, which has celebrated editorial and design excellence in the magazine industry for over 20 years.

The article deals with the dangers of the diminishing biodiversity in the American urban and suburban landscape and the need for suburban lawns to be populated with natural native plant species instead of unnatural plant species imported from across the globe.

It also focuses on the importance of functional landscaping, using plants that, in addition to their beauty, help support ecosystem development, instead of aesthetical landscaping, using plants which may look nice but serve little ecosystem function.

Tallamy was honored in the category for association/non-profit publication with circulation less than six times a year.
