Lawns that Rock
I noticed a rock lawn on a run recently. (It is exactly what it sounds like – an entire lawn made up of decorative rocks and zero grass.) I was unsure what to think of it at first. But, now that we have our own (high-maintenance) lawn, I realize that it’s nothing short of genius. Here are things that you probably wouldn’t hear in a household with a rock lawn. - Honey, will you please go mow the rocks? - I guess we better hire a rock-guy to mow our rocks while we’re on vacation. - Can you go water the rocks? - Do you think we need to buy some fertilizer for the rocks? - There’s something wrong with the rock-mower. I think we need to buy a new one. - Are our rocks dying? - Maybe we should re-seed the rocks. I think it’s too late for us to convert our grass lawn into rocks. But, maybe it’s not too late for us to start camping out at the rock-lawn residence and calling it home. We’ll give them a lawn mower and call it a fair trade. We’ll even throw in some fertilizer and weeds for free.
