Just curious on how everyone incorporates or don’t incorporate grass for your yard haunt. Leave it? Cover it? Mixture of both?
I wouldn't get between a man and his lawn.Right now I'm debating on cutting out foam dino prints that I can anchor to our lawn with frost cloth fabric clips so that it will smother the grass underneath and show up as dino footprints. Not sure how my husband would feel about that or how long it would take to get the effect I want. The lawn guys recently feed the grass and it looks so nice right now.
Regardless how you go about it, I am looking forward to seeing how it turns out. 🦕Sometime I think we can over think things. It's been a few hours since posting and just realized I don't have to really kill the grass and instead just paint the foam footprints an earthen color and use the frost cloth staples to anchor in to the ground as is. Duh!
Also cut mine as short as possible right before setup, then let it grow through October. Leaves and other natural debris become part of the scene and are used to hide cords, bases, flatforms and other items you don't want seen.I mow it as short as I can get it and make sure its raked 1 week prior to putting out my yard display. I do this because I have to walk in my display everynite to bring in all my led lights and anything else I dont want getting damp,wet or stolen. Also, I dont really like having wet shoes and socks every nite.
