Plastic Grass

First broadcast: 10 April 1968

Here's a solution for anyone who dreams of having their own garden but doesn't fancy the hassle of pruning, weeding and repotting. James Burke explores an artificial garden that contains synthetic grass and plants made from polypropylene. Instead of fly spray, how about a polish? Forget the lawn-mower, just get out the vacuum cleaner to keep the plastic grass neat and tidy.
