This instructable is for an idea that I saw on a longboarding forum. The idea is that you can grow grass on the deck of a skateboard providing a soft surface that consumes CO2 and puts out fresh, clean Oxygen! Thats right, it is the ultimate hipster ecofreak treehugger accessory!
To start out, you need a skateboard to be your ginneapig. It can be a normal skateboard, or a longboard.
Step 1: Building the "planter"
In order to contain the dirt on top of the deck, we need a short wall around the edge of the deck to make a bowl. I chose to make it out of strips of cardboard because it is soft to your feet, and widely available as a post consumer material. Make strips about a quarter of an inch thicker than the width of the deck and attach it to the sides of the board. To do this, I used a mixture of roofing nails, and blue painters tape. It may be a better idea to just use duct tape due to the fact that roofing nails split the wood pretty badly. This is not too much of a problem since I am a pretty small person, but it may mean bad news for you, fatty.
Step 2: Fill it with dirt!
Next step is pretty self explanitory. Fill 'er up with dirt. Find it, buy it, whatever you want. as long as it resembles ground, it'll work!
