After mowing my grass recently, I sat down on my patio and started to wonder why, with this being 2017, have we not developed grass seed that only grows to the height of 2 inches?  That would mean no mowing needed? Why can't we do that?

I then decided to cut open a watermelon I purchased and began to eat it. While eating, I noticed that I had purchased a seedless watermelon. How does that work? No seeds? It got me to thinking, how could we grow a watermelon without seeds and not be able to grow grass of only 2 inches.  Why can't we do that?

I then began to read a magazine article that was mentioning how newly developed housing areas in the northeast are utilizing solar power to heat up driveways in the winter to prevent snow and ice from accumulating which equates to no snow shoveling in the winter. It got me to thinking, if they can do that, why can't we develop grass that only grows two inches? Why can't we do that?

Let's see! Watermelon without seeds and no shoveling needed on driveways and we still can't develop 2 inch grass. Perhaps if we ask the question enough, someone will find a way to make it happen. Why can't we do that?
