Miracle Grass – Never Needs Mowing

It seems that I’ve stumbled upon one of the greatest agricultural breakthroughs of our time – grass that never needs mowing.  I have a yard full of the stuff.  Low maintenance, time-saving and great for the environment.

There appears to be only two problems with it.  It only comes in one color – brown, and big clouds of dirt, reminiscent of the dust bowl during the depression, get kicked up when you walk through it.  Oh yeah, and it seems to catch fire really easily.

    Will – this reminds me of my son’s goldfish that was “sleeping” and never needed food anymore. :-)

    Will,

    I planted that same grass during the drought California was having back in the early 90′s. Remember the news stories of folks in Santa Barabara having their lawns “painted” green?
