Having a small and concrete outdoor space doesn’t mean you can’t grow some greenery around your home. In fact, with a little creativity, you can even create something that’s quite unique and remarkable.
This is what Jason Hodges just did at their home. He created something at their concrete backyard that took the internet by storm. Mr. Hodges transformed a barren concrete courtyard into a comfy and cozy day bed out of green grass. And by the looks of it, it’s so perfect for a simple backyard picnic or even for an afternoon relaxing nap. Amazing right?
Here’s the video of the Grass Day Bed courtesy of Better Homes and Gardens YouTube channel.
In the above video, Hodges details how he created his masterpiece by transforming a barren courtyard into a comfy pad made out of real grass. First, he constructs the base of a futon and dresses it with a headboard. He then constructed the top frame where the grass will grow. To finish his project, Hodges used some charcoal stain in the wood for that elegant look.
The type of grass that Jason used was the soft leaf buffalo turf – a low maintenance type of grass that can grow beautifully and has a soft touch. Speaking of maintenance, Jason mentioned that you only need a good pair of sheers and a watering can to keep the Grass Day Bed beautiful at all times.
