"Live plants die on the playa. Ask anyone that has brought them. They always make a mess. In our history no one has ever brought in plants, trees or palm fronds without creating a M.O.O.P. (Mater Out of Place) disaster. Every sight that has used them in any quantity has cost the clean up crew days and days of work post event.
There have been a couple of camps that have successfully brought out sod, but they have been few and far between."

Ron with Shady Asylum has generously offered to help out with tips on how to lay and remove sod leaving no trace on the playa. He has a track record (with Blue House) of success. Feel free to ask him any questions by contacting him at firstname.lastname@example.org
I will not fear. Fear is the mind killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone . . . there will be nothing. Only I will remain.
