I read a lot of blogs and news stories. One recently I scanned was talking about lawns. When I think of a lawn, it is usually beautiful green grass.. I love going barefoot on freshly mowed grass! Something about that smell reminds me of when I was a little girl. To me it is a fresh smell that reminds me of watermelons.. ( I know that sounds crazy to some, but next time you cut your grass, see if you can't smell a hint of watermelon ).
Some people apparently think of their lawn in a totally different way. They see all the work and mowing it takes. Therefore, some homeowners today are replacing their lawns with luxury AstroTurf.. in the end, it probably costs less than real grass since there is no mowing, no trimming and no weeding. There are also no issues with too much or too little sun or cold. Sounds like a great idea for someone with a really small yard that doesn't want to mow or maybe can't for health reasons.
For me, I will stick with my real grass. I really don't mind the upkeep. How about you? Do you want to mow, or not mow?
