Realistically you will wear yourself out in 15 or 30 minutes, tops. Throw down some remnant carpet and just roll it up when you're done. Won't hurt the grass one bit.

Whelp, you sound like a young guy. Don't have to worry about your knees much at that stage. You can throw some old carpet down on the driveway and go for your life.

I used to be a landscaper years ago and did maintenance on some pretty unbelievable properties in Vancouver... trust me when I say you won't hurt the grass, especially if you put some old carpet or something down. Besides, what good is a yard if you can't enjoy it?

Skateboarding will help snowboarding but it's not the same.

I live my life one storm at a time.
