Manicured Lawns Are Highly Overrated

OK OK ... so I'm sittin' out on the front porch this fine afternoon, sippin' a cold beer & listening to some BB King ... just really kickin' back and enjoying being alive ... and all the sudden mah lil' petite flower, Olga, comes out and commences to raggin' on me something awful about mowing the grass. Now I ask you ... does this grass need mowin' yet? HUHHH?? Hell no, it don't. Sometimes I just don't understand women.

That lawn just looks healthy. Seems a shame to mow it. Besides, you can still see some of that tree.

that grass is beautiful! but your city might have a height ordinance!?! if it gets beyond a certain height, they can fine you, but i like the natural look myself. always wear eye protection and boots while mowing the lawn and don't reach under while the blade is turning. : ) a piano playing friend of mine did just that and nipped off the tips of 2 fingers. seriously.

I love having grass at that height, I think it makes a healthier lawn if you don't mow it all the time, but our neighbors are jerks and called the City on us when our grass was only about 8 inches tall. I was most displeased -- I may have implied the fine feller from the City of Manhattan didn't know how to use a ruler -- and he now comes out at least 3 times a summer to make sure we're WITHIN THE LAW. In short, it's stupid. I'm also jealous of your lawn, because it looks so inviting.
