The `grid-area` property doesn’t seem to be very readable. Is this property used much in practice or do most developers stick with the more readable (but less concise) `grid-row` and `grid-column` properties?

Answer

It is always best to conform to whatever syntax is already being used within a project but if you are working on a solo project then this is a matter of personal preference.

I do find grid-row and grid-column to be more readable than the grid-area property and so I tend to use those properties instead. Whatever syntax you prefer, remember to be consistent with it.
