Living Carpet

Introduction: Living Carpet

I tought it would be nice to create a living Carpet , which invites people to sit down in the sun and enjoy Nature.

This project was realized at the Botanical Garden in Linz (Austria).

Step 1: Finding a Place

First you just need to pick a place for you Project. You decide if it´s in your private space or if you have access to a public space where more people can enjoy your work and gather for exchange or just sharing free Time.

Step 2: Adding Soil

you need to have enough earth, depending on the square meter you want your carpet.

I directly put the earth on the grass so later the rolling lawn can grow- the whole carpet increases and looks more like a Carpet lying on the ground.

Step 3: Add Rolling Lawn

put the rolling lawn on the prepared ground and water it twice a day.

After a few days it might be rooted.

Step 4: Start Cutting

When the lawn has rooted you can start cutting the Pattern you like. I preferred working with a scissor to make precise lines and surfaces.

Step 5: Enjoy

Enjoy your playful thoughts while resting on a living carpet ;)

....and don´t forget to recut or adding new patterns.

    Interesting! I can't say I've ever seen anything quite like this. It's very clever yard art! : )
