    Mind bending! Thanks!!

    I would be very interested in how this is accomplished.

    Niche horticulture? Special training? Specialized techniques?

    Grows so fast – particular species of grass? engineered irrigation? pest control needed to suppress weeds and/or fungi like pythium or other water molds? maintenance, obviously, requires a grounds crew with a mower!

    Kudos to your ingenuity there! Hats off to your National Trust!!!

    And something so comical about seeing adults on oversized furniture. Puts a smile on my face. MIT recently hosted a Furniture Society conference featuring a great outdoor furniture exhibit with oversized hay bale couches:
