GROW YOUR OWN GRASS FURNITURE

Here’s a great spring project to get you ready for those up-coming summer barbeques: grow your own lawn furniture with the Terra Grass Armchair kit [2]. All you need to do is assemble a cardboard frame, fill it with soil, seed it with grass, then stand back and watch it bloom. In just a couple weeks, a green and grassy armchair will appear in your lawn!

This reminds us of the ReadyMade Make-Your-Own-Lawn-Couch project [3], and Julian Lwin’s Biodegradable Bench [4] that we covered a few days ago. The Terra Grass Armchair [2] however, seems like the simplest and easiest route to a furnished lawn if you don’t have a lot of time or money on your hands.

$100 or �65 from ThePresentFinder.co.uk [2]
