    Grammar Unsure of word/phrase to use

    Discussion in 'Word Mechanics' started by -NM-, Dec 23, 2015.

    If you had, say a building or a structure (or anything really), which was alone, with just flat ground all around it - is there a word or phrase that you can use to describe "every direction away from it".

    For example if I wanted to say there was nothing but grass spreading out in every direction away from it.

    I feel like there is a word for this but I can't remember what it is.

    Thanks.

    ... circumscribed by a wide/endless field of grass...
    ... surrounded by grass...
    ... with an omnidirectional spread of grass...
    ... grass spread in all directions...
    From it, grass spread in a peregrination, intent on all points of the compass.

    This may sound a bit too academic/scientific, but the words "isotropic" and "homogeneous" may work.
