Sod Bed

  [vote for,

I remember sunny summer afternoon Sunday naps in the green grass in my back yard, as Pop read the paper in a busted up lawn chair. The things that stand out in my memory are how everything looked blue when I would opened my eyes and also how relaxing those lazy days were sleeping in the grass.

I have seen people grow grass in flower pots in the house and was inspired to create a day bed with real grass and blue grow lamps.

       [+] Comfy. But, blue lamps would tend to keep one from falling asleep.

       blue lamps Optional then
vfrackis, Jan 16 2016

       well, you could have them on when it's not being used as a bed, but are you sure grass uses blue light to grow ?
FlyingToaster, Jan 16 2016

       I am so glad this was the grass kind.

       It's pasture bed time mister!   

       [+] one might enjoy some grass while enjoying their grass bed.

       [+] for [2 fries]'s comment.

       Is it necessary to make the bed in the morning, or do you leave it a lawn ?

       You need more than one of these. Otherwise constant use of a single sod bed would kill the grass. You need to be able to use different beds to give the previous one(s) time to recover from such things as light-blockage.

       So, a giant and elaborate framework which rotates a fresh sod bed from the rack mounted on the outside wall of your house, through a sealed hatch into your bedroom.

       /recover from such things as light-blockage/   

       This would be a problem if you tended to sleep for many days at a time. For those who wake up more or less at sunrise, this problem could be addressed by unmaking your bed in the morning.

       "Honest, Officer Plimpkin. I thought it was grass, not Grass."

       O2 would still be seeping out, even at night, for sweet sleeping airs.
wjt, Jan 19 2016

       And speaking of seeping out, less than perfect continence in such a bed would be welcome.
bungston, Jan 19 2016

       I can think of only one issue...worms. Worms love sod. But I don't care, they could wiggle their way all night. +

       //O2 would still be seeping out, even at night,//   

       Uh, would it? I'm trying to remember the various plant biochemistries out there, but I am pretty sure that grass would only be respiring during the hours of darkth.

       Not too long, not too short.[+]

       This guy built one. [link]   

       /t grass would only be respiring during the hours of darkth./   

       True, but the seeping out of O2 happens during photosynthesis in the day.
