Ha! Ha! Is he causing you to gnaw your nails down to the quick, Lep?

I think the real reason North Americans are so obsessive about lawns is that they are worried what the neighbours think. That's certainly true in my mother's case. The best way to escape it is to move out into the country, and have a meadow around your place instead...or a little patch of forest.

Either that or just pave the area over, and cover it with a green astroturf carpet that never needs watering or cutting, and will not attract ants either. Totally sterile, totally unnatural, but totally green. I'm surprised more people have not opted for that approach.
