It's weird when I think about it...

Between the flood and the huge trash pile that destroyed our grass and the lack of rain (until recently)...our grass was dead.

So we decided to let it grow after we seeded it....and now it's filling in very nicely.  It's long, but lush.

We noticed more and more of our neighborhood followed us....their grass is looking healthier too.

But the yards where people mow to the bones every week...they're grass is dead.  All dried up and crispy looking.

It's been really hot out here in Texas.  Longer grass in the summer is better for the yard and even cuts back on the need for extra watering.

That's how it is here right now. Everyone has very nicely cut grass, very short, but every yard is yellow. Looks ugly.
I am an evil giraffe, and I shall eat more leaves from this tree than perhaps I should, so that other giraffes may die.

Do you or the other neighbors have a sprinkler system?

Grass won't grow here unless you water it three times a week.

Just curious.

We do, not sure about the neighbors. In the 2 years I've been here I've never seen anyone water their lawn.

Grass grows here but it's been running mid to high 80's and 90's for the last few weeks and we've had little rain.

The recoil spring sprung on my lawn mower more than a week ago and now I am one of those people you speak of.

Now there are all kinds of properties with weeds growing up. It's like some people don't care anymore. I don't know how they sit out in their yard with foot tall grass and all kinds of weeds growing up and crap strewn around and enjoy themselves without being driven buggy looking at it and not having the urge to clean it up some.   Yeah

I need to brush hog... I care.

In my city, you can't have any weeds over three inches high, or you will probably get a nastygram from them.

But weeds are not my biggest priority most of the time, so I admit I let it slide for a couple weeks at a stretch.

I used to spray Glyphosate (roundup) but now, not so much because it makes your dick drop off. (so I heard)

Not this time...
I thought about hitting it with the electric hedge clippers but I don't want to crawl around in this heat.
