Grow your own lawn chair

Prod 20478
Seems like a fun project to make on your own, a chair made out of lawn – “The Grass armchair is self assembled, each pack contains 14 corrugated cardboard frames and 100g pack of grass seeds. You will need about 240 litres of soil, to fill in the frame. First find the right spot, because once the armchair has grown you won’t be able to move it!! You can put up to 20cm of gravel with in the frame then the soil. Spread the seeds evenly using only 4/5 of the bag of seeds. Press them in and water slightly so that the soil is humid. Water the armchair everyday.” [via] – Link.

  1. Pretty cool. I could see putting these in public parks. But I wonder if there is another ground cover that uses less water, doesn’t need to be mowed (or cut less often) and is as comfortable as grass?

  2. No! This is not a joke. I saw this in the Hawkins Bazzaar Catalogue two years ago, if it worked it would maybe be alright but the price of 65 pounds is enough to put most people off.

  3. I first saw this picture a couple of years ago in context with a contemporary art show. I’ve wanted to make one ever since, but have been held back by my lack of a yard and my concern that the grass wouldn’t grow to well along the sides. I suppose if you lived somewhere humid it would work.

  6. Wouldn’t it be simpler to pile dirt, pack it down, and shape it. (doesn’t look to comforable without a back rest)

  7. It’s a pity that Purves and Purves no longer sells this, and there is no place to download the templates to make it yourself.  Anyone have a pdf of the template to make this?
