On Minecraft, XBox 360 Edition, I have a 40x40 block area that I plan to build in, except for one small problem; almost all of it is covered in tall grass. What's the quickest way to clear all of this tall grass? NOTE: I would like the actual grass blocks to stay intact

So no TNT then... –  Zommuter Jul 10 '13 at 6:37
That's kinda the whole point :P . If I was willing to use TNT the entire biome would have been blown to kingdom come by now. –  KrymeX Jul 10 '13 at 12:42

Pour a bucket of water down. It will knock the tall grass/flowers/etc off the block.

That's probably much more time efficient than my method of holding the mouse button then flailing the view wildly until everything is gone –  RhysW Jul 10 '13 at 8:32
@RhysW: lol, that tends to be what I do as well :P –  mellamokb Jul 10 '13 at 21:03
Why was my first reaction "Why not lava?" ? - I'm getting scared of myself. Well, why not Lava? Because Lava flows only 4 blocks away. –  SF. Jul 11 '13 at 8:00
Because I don't want to start a 40x40 fire o.o –  KrymeX Jul 12 '13 at 8:56
