jardin à la francaise

how does your garden grow? well, with jardin à la francaise—designer romain duclos' brilliant new creation—your garden can grow any way you want it to!

here's how it works:
  1. order the kit.
  2. wait for it to arrive.
  3. place synthetic field elements on the grass by following a figure on the guide, or invent one of your own.
  4. leave in place for 10 to 12 days.
  5. remove.
  6. voila! your lawn is personalized for approximately fifteen days.

how clever is that? below you can see it in action (left) and immediately after. brilliant! it's perfect for a party, an event or just for kicks. file this one under just plain nifty.

I love this idea! How fun to do this when you have guests over. You will be the talk of all your friends! It will look like you paid some fabulous landscaper to come out. :)
