So, a few things.
1) We actually have a lot of land in the USA....so why not?
2) It's tough for kids to play catch with the dogs or with pops with all the trees and underbrush left around.
3) God only knows what kind of animals & bugs can lurk around in that kind of shit.
4) Dirt + torrential rain = mud pit. Not very attractive.
In deference to desert dwellers, pouring a bunch of lava rocks (interesting how they're also found in propane barbecue grills) on the yard and calling it done isn't exactly a workable solution for the rest of the country. First of all, where it rains, lava rocks being non-absorbent don't help with the whole flooding / pool of mud thing. Secondly, and not insignificantly, rock gardens as yards are uglier than the pile of fuck Shane railed against.
So, if it's not grass, what else is a civilized society to do with the ground surrounding thier abodes??!?
