Dying woman who turned her yard into a giant sandbox threatened with jail

Georgianna Reid, of Brookside, Mo., has been threatened with jail time and fines if she does not remove the sand in the front yard of her home.


She converted her yard to a sandpit with 160,000 pounds of sand three years ago, for a total of $4,000.

“I would say I’m putting in the largest litter box in the world,” she said.
Reid’s neighbors have complained that her landscaping is affecting property values, and in bad weather, the sand is pouring onto the sidewalk.

She has been given 10 days to remove the sand — or face 180 days in jail or a $1,000 fine.

Reid, who is terminally ill, says she will pay to fix the problem so that she does not spend her last days in prison.
However, she is not going down easy.

“I will take the sand out of the yard, but I’m going to [convert it to] an asphalt yard because I’m still not gonna mow,” she told reporters.

Just goes to show, the grass is not always greener on the other side.
