I haven't been able to find anything locally, and I hate to buy something like that over the internet for fear it won't be exactly what I want. So, a few weeks ago I think I found what I'm looking for at Home Depot. It's called Newgrass.
It's designed for use outdoors, but it looks and almost feels like real grass! A nice area rug will cost close to $1,000 and a 7 x 9 roll of Newgrass is around $300.
They had some samples out, so right there in Home Depot, I took my shoes off and walked on it, just to see what it would feel like. It's actually quite soft for the grandkids to play on and I'm seriously considering using this. What do you think - am I crazy or what?
