Green, green grass of home



This beautiful lawn was found by Clint of the Portland Housing Blog, and isn't it delightful? Yes, they'll all come to see me, in the shade of that old oak tree...

Yet it STILL looks better than that hideous green in the kitchen!

Did they really think that people would be fooled? Crazy.

Alex said...

It sort of looks like an abyss, like in a glitchy video game where you fall through the ground or outside a level and just keep falling into infinity.

2.1 bathrooms? Is that .1 just a toilet? Maybe it's just a faux-to shopped bathroom.

T said...

it looks like they've put a fence around a large spill of lego plastic... wish I lived close enough to pop over and see what it actually looks like - because it can't be worse than this... oh wait, this blog has taught me that it CAN be worse...

Maybe it's time to give these guys a little credit...you never know, maybe these guys have read the lovely listing: MAYBE the photoshopped green lawn is hiding, oh, I don't know, a giant mountain of shopping carts! Cars up on blocks! A nuclear blast site! Swastika mosaics for paving stones! Who knows: Maybe the greeen, greeen paint bucket is an _improvement_.

LOL, the song is a bit eerie for this one... It's about a guy who's "going home" after he's sat in a chair or had an encounter with a rope or something... YIKES!

How stupid do they think people are? That's just crazy!

Hmmm... I'd never considered using fabric instead of grass. I suddenly feel inspired to run out & buy a bunch of bright green pool table felt.

Have that plant on the fridge also gone walkies to the top of the mantelpiece?

Or maybe they just really like succulents.

Glory von Hathor said...

Have that plant?

Dammit. Need caffiene.

Lulu LaBonne said...

Actually that's not a lawn, it's a swimming pool, I know cause mine looks like that

Steph said...

take a look at the side yard in the picture of the front of the house...I think that gives us a clue about what the backyard actually looks like...nice job. and that 2.1 bathroom? maybe it's a sink, shower...and a urinal?

If I had known that gardening could be that easy, I would not have bothered moving from a house to an apartment :)

Green Grass and High Tides

Chris Z. said...

Ash has a point there. It is in Cornelius so either it's full of old cars or maybe doggie land mines.

Constructively Reasonable said...

When a prior posting showed a picture that used the "Spray" feature of Paint to fill in the grass, I suggested that "Fill" would be better.

I now stand corrected.

On the plus side, I feel that this yard would be an AWESOME place to play 9 ball...

kccat said...

Wow, that's really really bad.

meg said...

2.1 baths? I'd have to think that steph was right with the suggestion that it has a urinal in it. But who has a urinal in the house, seriously?!

Also: I feel an intense desire to carpet my lawn now.

The Mef Thing said...

No. Way.
It's just too much.

In this case, indeed, the spray tool would have been better.
Never thought I would say that.

Deb Clague said...

LMAO - I thought the same thing as Alex. Clearly we are children of the Nintendo-loving 80s.
