Green Carpets is from my Wallpaper series which layers mid-century American wallpaper with text and image from the same period.
The text reads: "The Lawn and Its Upkeep
No single feature of a suburban residential community contributes so much to the charm and beauty of the individual home and locality as well-kept lawns. Stabilization of values, yes, increase of values, will most often be found in those neighborhoods where lawns show as green carpets, and trees and shrubbery join to impart the sense of residential elegance. Where lawns and landscape material are neglected the neighborhood soon assumes a sub-standard or blighted appearance and is naturally shunned by the public."
