For many years in my youth, I would mow our acre of grass with a push mower. It would seem to take hours, which, I suppose it did. At the beginning of the summer when the grass would grow so rapidly, I would be mowing once a week. Eventually we realized that we didn’t even really use the back half of the lawn for anything that required neatly manicured grass and gave up on cutting it. However, after letting it go for a number of years, my mother discovered the beauty of our sourcing labor and hired a landscaping company with superior economies of scale to talk care of the job in about a half an how. I have to ask myself, what is the point of keeping it neat and cut? We rarely go out on that part of the property – long or short grass.
