Artificial Turf would look great there in place of the real grass. And it would hold up better too.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Jackson also talks about the class distinctions that made wood dwellings appropriate for those who might have to move on short notice to follow work (or, for farmers, when the land was exhausted), and those that made stone buildings appropriate for families with money who could remain in one place for generations. In another essay in Discovering the Vernacular Landscape, "Stone and Its Substitutes", he asserts that stone "was noble because it had been extracted from the depths of the earth and was timeless." On the other hand, felling a tree is relatively easy and cheap, reinforcing Jackson's distinctions.This cottage in the Blue Ridge Mountains shows how stone can be used for walls and roofs. Together they give the house a solidity that roots it in its place.
