Genetics & Grass

  My engineering graphics class has been working on alternate ways of 
controlling grass. We will will eventually lead up to taking a good look at 
an electric lawnmower, in the meantime we are trying to look for alternate 
ways to control it.  I was wondering if it is possible/feasable to genitacally
engineer grass so that it only grows to a few inches in height or grows so
very slowly that it would only need to be mowed once a month or so.  We're
in St. Louis if climate is anything.
   Thank you very much!
