I am currently working in a desert in an office environment, and thought about a crazy idea. I have an about 10' by 12' room with glass windows on two sides from floor to ceiling. I was wondering, would it be feasible to put grass down, more or less, as the flooring? I give classes in that room and it gets a bit hot, so I was thinking about this. So far my idea would be to put down waterproofing plastic and paint with some stone finishing to make it look a bit better and the step up into the room, but I'm not sure whether it would work or not.
It probably would not have enough light, plus there are probably some electrical issues or ordinances that it would not work with.
But if you are looking to help the air quality and natural feel of the room, this video may interest you:
I have a small yard. I have turned the entire yard into a flower garden, mostly perennials. I would like to have the feel of an English garden. Is this possible in a small garden, and what plants would you advise?

My house currently has a two to three foot deep straight line flower bed around three sides of the garage. It is currently planted with a single line of perennials. Very boring! Any ideas for how to spice things up without adding a great deal more gardening space?

This is my first home, and I've never planted anything, but I would like to start just with a small flower garden, and a tomato garden. Please help. Thank You.

Can you tell me if 'carbon zero' insulation material would work in place of rockwool or sphagnum moss in a vertical living wall? Will it have similar properties, and has it been tried before cause I'm going to have a go at it?
Do you know the exact kind of insulation you will be using? There are several kinds of carbon neutral insulation. My gut says that it should work, but I would need to know the exact kind to be sure. Other than that, I would recommend testing it first. Perhaps you could snitch a small piece and see if it retains water. I am sorry I cannot be more help.
When you are putting concrete edging in the ground, does it have to be concreted in to keep it from moving?
No, it is not necessary to use concrete when placing this type of edging in the ground. However, it depends on what kind you are using and whether or not it will be built up (like a retaining wall), which may require mortar. If you're simply placing it around a bed (single layer), then leaving it as is should be adequate.
