    I was reading the paper today and it had an article on synthetic lawns. I thought it was interesting and went to the web site listed below. I watched some of the videos and I liked the power broom one the best. Average price is about $4 per sq. foot. It seems like it would take 50+ years to pay for itself. By then it might be faded too. What do other people think?

    they had some of that stuff on 4 soccer fields here. It was nice, no maintenance. They laid it in a parking lot with justa few inches of soil under it. It was ground up tires for the "dirt" holding the grass. and when they closed the soccer fields, they rolled it up and took it off to someplace else.
