Grass Bed: a Cozy Green Oasis in Your Concrete Backyard
Lying on the grass and taking in the warm sunshine is an enjoyment for most of us. However, having a green space isn’t that easy when you live in city, even when you have a backyard. Because it might be made of concrete. With this obstacle in mind, Jason Hodges, a landscape gardener on the Australian TV show “Better Homes & Gardens”, has come up with a clever solution – creating a grass day bed.
In the TV show, Hodges demonstrates how to build the grass bed from scratch. Hodges begins by constructing the frame, which involves assembling a wood pallet and slatted headboard. Afterwards, he covers the base with geofabric and fills it with dirt and fertilizer. Sod is then rolled onto the freshly-laid ground. Once the “mattress” is complete, Hodges then adds accessories to the outdoor piece of furniture—the headboard conveniently doubles as a planter, allowing him to place decorative greenery into the vertical panel. All that’s left is to trim the grass, add the cushions, and the most important of all—lay down and enjoy!
