We all have them...

Some people on our streets that don't maintain/mow/trim their lawns and landscape.

We all have the people that are religiously doing the same.


We should have a public thread here like the list of addresses nominated for the best Christmas Lights.

Both Good and Bad.

I am at the mercy of a person I hire to do my lawn. Generally, she is reliable. Now she hasn't been here in 2 weeks, even though I called. I hate how my lawn looks right now.

She really needs the jobs and in the past has done me lots of small jobs very reasonably, so I hate to call it quits with her.

I wonder how many other people who could be called "bad" are really at the mercy of someone they hire.

You've got way too much time on your hands. Think about getting a life.

I think its a nice idea, we enjoy the Christmas lights so why not appreciate the work people put into there yards year round.

Personally I don't want to hear about the nasty ones, bad enough to have to look them LOL

Maybe the people with unkemp lawns have more important things to do than mow their lawn. i.e. taking care of children, family illness, working a second or third job.

Thank you very, very much, Ma'am. I see that there is at least one here who recognizes true lawn care talent and greatness when she sees it.

For the rest of you: I just KNOW that there is at least one weed in each of your lawns, Get out there, find it, and poison it, along with your cats! You who live near a body of water might also have the thrill of killing some fish.

Please also remember that we don't have much hope of keeping the gas price high unless we keep using lots of gas in our mowers. Please do your duty to Exon-Mobile, and get out there and run that mower for a while. Your neighbors will love the noise and the fumes; trust me on this.

I don't believe harvesting your hemp counts as "mowing the lawn".
