Years ago in Chicago, one of my neighbors got tired of his lawn, and had the whole thing dug up. He poured a slab of cement. When it dried, he painted it green.
I have to say we all envied him. No watering or cutting grass just pure patio, front and back. He just rolled out the lounge chairs, table, and what barbecues he had.

What could I plant to replace the grass? I am old and don't want to cut grass anymore. Thank you.
