Just because you have a bare outdoor space in your yard doesn’t mean you can’t be one with nature and enjoy the luxury of a lawn. In this video, courtesy of Better Homes and Gardens, Jason Hodges transforms a barren concrete courtyard into a comfy, vibrant day bed out of grass — and it’s perfect for a backyard picnic or an afternoon nap. What a cool, creative idea!
First, Jason constructs the base of a futon and dresses it with a headboard. Then comes the top frame in which the grass and soot will sit. And to top it off, Jason finishes the wood with a charcoal stain for a sleek and elegant look.
Jason then fills his raised garden with soft leaf buffalo turf, a type of grass that’s easy to look after and nice and soft to the touch. And all you really need to maintain the grass daybed? A good pair of sheers and a watering can.
“It’s fine that it looks good, but the most important thing is how does it feel?” Jason says. “I’m pleased to report it’s a 10 out of 10.”
What a perfect excuse to wear your sunscreen to bed. Please SHARE this amazing DIY project with your friends on Facebook!

Free energy is the idea that a low-cost power source can be found that requires little to no input to generate a significant amount of electricity. Such devices can be divided into two basic categories: “over-unity” devices that generate more energy than is provided in fuel to the device, and ambient energy devices that try to extract energy from the environment.-Watch this Video ⇓
