i don't see it the way you seem to
i see those lawns as a type of Shrine
...see, we take a few moments from the confines of our homes,
and either make our way to a green lawn
or just simpily gaze upon a yard or field,
so we may drink-in some the beauty and relax in the momentary
reprieve from the demands of a stark, sometimes hostile, fitfull world.
we...or, some of us...are thankfull & grateful for that brief 'sanctuary'
of course, your take on the 'greening' is real & true, to an extent....
but, i think, takes a subordinate position to the most beneficial 'Shrine' model....
have a nice day ya'll
my duties today include 'terra-forming' the front yard,
caring for the Bonzi'd bushes, arranging stones & sand,
maintaining the topriary, sprigging where needed,
