We are buying a house (yay!) and we'll need to completely landscape our very small backyard. My other half is dead set on fake grass because it's inexpensive and it requires no mowing. I'm not so convinced.
Does anyone have any ideas for groundcover that is real, requires no mowing, but still allows us to sit on a blanket and read or bask in the sun when the weather allows?
Neither Ariel nor I have yards, so we must pass this question to the yard-having and ground-covering-knowledgable Homies. What are your suggestions for astro-turf alternatives?
