I want @Phaedra Geiermann to know that Americans are out there that appreciate green grass in their backyards. Even though, she may have no need for irrigation concerns and share an environment at the moment similar to Alabama and the TEG gardeners there.
I just want something that is cool and soft and tidy and not muddy and hard and hot .
What some are calling "hardscape" these days looks nice to me at a distance. I might like it a good deal more if I did not live here in the Wild West - some of my thinking on hardscape came through on the recent thread about a gazebo.
Yes, I'd like to live on the north side of a mountain with my garden secured from raids by the pests on the southside, with babbling brooks on both sides - tributaries to a good trout-fishing river downstream, with a nice green lawn beneath the fragrant cedar trees. That's during the summer ... Winter, a nice tight greenhouse springs up around the garden with its lawn beneath a hammock and heated by a geothermal spring surfacing in my attached bathhouse/sweat lodge. Aaahhhh ...
