Subject: RE: BS: The Truth about Grass!
I agree entirely, Amos. It was a desire to imitate the lifestyles of the very rich that led to this lawn culture. That is also why tanning became so popular in recent historical times. There was a time when having a very pale skin was associated with the rich, and you didn't find anyone going out and deliberately trying to get "a tan" in those days. Hell, no! A tanned skin in those days was the mark of the working class, most of whom worked the land under the hot sun, and had no choice about it.

Your ideal scenario is just like mine.

Now, I will admit that a nicely kept lawn is a lovely sight, and is nice to be out on. No doubt. But it's not obligatory, that's all. There are plenty of perfectly good alternatives.
