My front lawn has grubs. If you’ve never had the pleasure, it looks like 1400 golfers used my lawn as a driving range and left 14,000 divot holes. The little buggers are chowing down big time, and soon my lawn will be a distant memory.
Can someone remind me why I bought a house?
I often wonder this. The main reason, I think, was because I didn’t want to share walls anymore. I wanted peace and quiet. Which I don’t get, by the way, since I’ve got a jackass for a neighbour that plays really crappy music until all hours of the morning. So much for peace and quiet. My apartment was quieter.
Back to the lawn situation. I refuse to spend tons of money to fertilize, water, etc, in order to get a decent-looking lawn. For that much money, I want something more or less permanent.
Which brings me to the best invention since sliced bread. Grassless lawns. Sounds like an oxymoron, doesn’t it? But check this out:
Looks real, eh? It’s artificial turf called SYNLAWN.
SYNLAWN is made for different types of foot traffic, both human and canine. The cost is approximately $15 a square foot, so it’s not cheap. The other option I’m considering is combining the use of SYNLAWN with landscaping, as in these photos:
While these options are costly, as least they’re permanent ones. And I can’t wait to see grubs choke down synthetic grass.
Revenge is sweet.
