Biograss Sod Farms is a local company from Sandy (where I grew up!) and they have made a list of common grass phrases that grew from grass.  I use these terms all the time and have never actually thought about it much until now.

So take a moment, and enjoy these common phrases that exist all because of grass.  As we’ve only posted a few of these common sayings, make sure to stop by their page to see the rest of these sayings!
