A reactionary piece that inspires reminiscent thoughts of time past, wouldn‚Äôt you join me for a trip down memory lane?‚Ä¶ As we find something from the past to give us a little pick me up.
So yeah, I used to cut grass for a living. You should know that by now but I will pretend you are new and don‚Äôt know what‚Äôs going on. I used to cut grass for a living some years back and I loved cutting grass. I took my job very seriously. Every stripe in the lawn was a little bit of heaven, I loved nothing more than to go by one of my creations when I finished‚Ä¶ just to take it in. I pride myself on a straight stripe a perfect 3 point turn on a wet hill conquering any landscape with ease and ah.
I kept my home lawn in tip top condition even watering it nightly to keep it growing so I could mow it twice a week. Pride in the green is what brought neighbors from my block to see my yard. It was very fulfilling. I loved both my old yard and the machines I used to use at my old job. Now I am afraid things are different because I rent my house and have one very poorly taken care of lawn. This aggravates me to no end, my stripes will not stick and the weeds are hideous. Horrible terrain too. I really don‚Äôt like mowing it. Oh how I long for the grass of the past, where I could find hours of fun just creating a pattern. Why did I leave? Well because I like to create‚Ä¶ and not so much in the grass either.
Well, that‚Äôs enough about me and my desire for the perfect lawn, we should discuss your failing grade on your lawn. Here are some tips as to how and make it better.
1) Stop going around and around till you are left in the middle of the yard with huge piles of grass to either side.
2) Stop drinking and mowing! I know it feels cool, but your friends are secretly laughing at you and your yard.
3) Make a good pattern, outline your yard twice and then start striping it back and forth. Never pull your mower. That looks dumb and any self respecting male will do it right.
4) Raise your deck and stop scalping your yard it looks like you let indians cut it, you will have to cut it again in a week anyway.
5) Lastly, mow your grass.
I hope this has been helpful. So get out there and keep America beautiful.
