I have two, one in front, one on the side, and enjoy mowing with my riding mower. We only have to water it 3-4 times in late July and August and it stays green thanks to the rain September-June.

No lawn and glad of it, think of the time we've saved not taking care of grass.

I suppose if the grass was edible, we'd make an effort.

After living in a concrete jungle all my life with maybe 3 sq feet of open dirt available anywhere, I finally have a lawn to take care of.


Actually more like a front, side and backyard lawn. When I bought the house it was mostly moss and clover and bare dirt that got dusty in the summer. Now it's lovely dark green, thick grass that I enjoy taking care of.

We have a small 6,000 square foot lot with a 1670 square foot home and a 20 X 24 attached garage. Home has an l shaped driveway. We also have a patio in the backyard that is 20' X 24'. The remainder of the back yard is a yard as is the front of the house. We also have an 8' x 24' strip of grass between the driveway and the house and another 45' X 8' strip running along the driveway and the neighbors yard. Also between the sidewalk and the road is a strip that is 35' X 6' all grass.
