Entry: greensward (n.)

In context:  "The hillside's grassy decline, not too steep, runs at a wedge's angle down toward Arlington St. and is one broad greensward, free of dog droppings because dogs won't go to the bathroom on inclined terrain."

Definition: Grass-covered ground; turf; an area of this.

Other: This is definitely a word I'm going use, even if I really have to force the issue.
