I drive by this "lawn" on my way home from Xera Plants. While the rest of Portland's lawns have gone golden for the dry season (minus the hundreds of Dandelions which manage to remain green all summer) this one has stayed bight green.
Of course you can tell why...
On a bright summer day, driving by at 35-mph, you can still see the shine. At least there aren't any weeds, in the lawn...
We don't see the fake stuff much here in Portland, no one seems to mind letting their lawns go dormant, after all they spring to green when the rains return in the fall. While I don't (by any stretch of the imagination) advocate fake, I do hate the sight of all the dormant lawns. Summer is the most beautiful time of the year here...why front your house with a dead lawn?
I wonder if this river of pebbles will help to route the rainwater from the "lawn?" I'll have to do a driveby on a really rainy day and see if the "lawn" is a (stinky) puddle.
So how do you feel about fake? And are you seeing them much in your community?
