earlier i was walking my dog down the street and i happen to notice a yard who's grass was so unbelievbly high, it was disgusting. i just shook my . and thought "why can't these fools cut their damn lawn" it won't be too long before snakes start slither through that


seriously, what's so hard about that. get your lawnmower, start it the
up, and cut that
i don't know it's just kinda pathetic to me that one could become THAT lazy. anyone else agree?

I'm very lazy when it comes to cutting my lawn. But when I do cut it, it's with a grass whip, so that kind of cancels out the laziness and makes me look pro.. Yup!

Well I just came in from running the mower over my lawn. I cut the grass at my building plus another apartment block I look after. But hey, they pay me to do it so I really don't get away with letting it grow.

We have a large church and it's ground across the street that was sold almost a year ago and is slated for development. The new owner had not cut the grass at the property even once this spring so I put a note on the door telling them it looked bad for the neighbourhood. I waited a couple weeks for them to clean up the litter and cut the grass but nothing happened.

My next step was to call city services and report them, and damn if the place wasn't spotlessly clean, grass cut, and gardens weeded within three days.

Hey LILORDLONGLAWNLOATHER, I hear ya there. I suggest you call the garden police on them, also threaten to get photos to send into the local newspaper, people like that should be put to shame.
So glad I just made a sensible reply, you have no idea what my initial reply was going to be.(would have got me
) hehe.

Well maybe you should first check who they are?

They could be old or disabled or do not have the money for a mower,

If so step up and give them a lil hand


I never judge before knowing the full story,

I remember walking past a very wild garden and like you i tutted, Untill i seen a lil old lady who could barely walk with a stick looking out her window,

I waved a few times and one day she came out to say hello, I asked her if she would like me to give her garden a little trim, She was so delighted and said it was something she wished that she could do, and it upset her to see it like that,

It was nice to see her sitting out in it only days later with another old lady,

I went back every few weeks and did it for her,

Indeed Asala is a total sweetheart, and so are you. Of course my reply was made in jest, but people such as the two of you, make the world a nicer place to live.

I can't believe you've got a problem with someone elses long grass!

So you are not lovers of nature and freedom then, and think their grass if for you're viewing pleasure and MUST be cut to some regulation, interval or standard?

You expect something that may not be possible perhaps?

I bet you would also complain about a lack of grass in a drought.

Let it grow..high...screw the neigbours.

And snakes! ... ha! sounds like some nice long grass would be a treat after all the manicured man-made environment it's had to suffer.

Sssssssssorry......one word....."anal"

If this is what "bugs" you....wait for reality to throw something really important your way.


This thread says so much!!!!!!!

I had a neighbor like this also. Our neighborhood was very close. All the neighbors would be out on Saturday morning doing their lawns and other yardwork.

We made up a calendar, and each of us on the street would take a turn cutting the lawn of the elderly lady who lost her husband the year her lawn got overgrown.

It only took and extra 45 minutes or so to get it done, and she greaty appreicated it.

Hardly anybody missed doing their yardwork on Saturdays, as we had one neighbor who would make pitchers of frosty strawberry margaritas every week!

We usually rounded out our Saturday work with a BBQ at either our house or one of the other neighbors.

That's the way neighborhoods should be.

I miss that place!
