The croquet lawn near where we live is so well coiffed and watered it is always immaculately well turned out for the croquet players. Wish my lawns looked half as good!
At TC's nursery they have just had artificial grass laid down, the children were giving the real grass quite a battering in their joyous, boisterous playing so artificial grass was the answer!
I am so impressed with it, it looks real, none of that fake plastic, pointy, sharp stuff. This feels soft on your feet and apparently can be vacuumed! I was wondering though how my dog would do, so to speak, if he did want to go, I have visions of muck spreading with my garden hose. Maybe not then!
