(KPLR) – Had enough rain for your lawn yet?  I don't know if you've been able to keep up with the grass cutting this year.  If not, your lawn might look like this.

I know AstroTurf is no longer cool but maybe it should be.
 
In other parts of the country a lawn means something other than grass; maybe it's time for us to find another option.
 
Some cities and subdivisions have strict rules on how tall a blade of grass can be.
 
I wouldn't make it in one of those subdivisions.
 
We've just had too much rain this year.

So if anyone has some alternate lawn looks, I'd love to see them.  We might be able to save some money on fuel for the lawn mower.

I'm JB and that's “The Way It Oughta Be”.
