    It's NOT real. Here's a picture of one of the places in town that has artificial turf mixed in with planters and trees which are the only parts of the landscape that have irrigation.

    Ran into the same stuff at a clients place a few months ago. Still doesn't look real enough for me.

    Besides, once kids tear the crap out of it, they will realize that even with water and maintenance, grass is cheaper.

    We've been thinking more along the lines of white spray paint if the gangbangers ever get that idea.

    AND... I noted that there are a couple of places along the curbs and sidewalks where the "grass" is starting to curl up and won't stay down.

    Who wants all that pesky photosynthesis anyway?

    ROFLMAO... And most guys think that Boots doesn't have a funny bone. :rolleyes:

    BTW... Does photosynthesis have anything to do with picture compression ratio?
