Don't really want anything done, I'm actually looking for the technical term for something. I'm doing a landscaping feature and I want to know what is the proper name for a negative-edge lawn. They have that with water features (infinity pool), but I can't find anything about the lawn equivalent of it.

I guess that would be the closest land feature I can compare it to. Like the lawn would be an elevated deck. Ugh, I'm sure there's some fancy art-school term for it.

Actually, reason for it is I'm looking to do some signage. The sign sort of rises from the ground, giving the edge of the turf a cliff of sorts; the name of that is actually what I'm trying to figure out.

use one of these terms?
An incline in the backyard such as this enables the swimming pool designer/contractor the ability to create such a disappearing or vanishing edge - invisible to the person viewing the pool. Negative edge is not the only name that describes this type of pool. Here are a few more terms: infinity edge, vanishing edge, zero edge, edge-less and reverse negative edge. The vanishing edge pool is an incredible feature when building a pool with an ocean, lake or pond in the backdrop, since the pool's edge and the water background have no definitive edges. Reverse Negative Edge - A reverse zero edge is such where the pool builder constructs the pool in the back and has the retention basin in the front, creating a natural waterfall spillover for the viewers in front. This can be an excellent selection for a swimming pool when designing a pool with a rising backyard slope.

That's what I've been referring to it as, but I Googled "negative edge lawn" and all its derivatives and nothing came up.

i'm not sure the square to round airbag is PnP, but i'd bet money on it being PnP.

if you have the round airbag already it's a quick job.
Yes, plug and play.

Well, with the airbag, plug and pray.

Just make sure you disconnect the battery first.
