I just can't give up my self-propelled/variable speed Craftsman. If I had to go back to a push mower, I'd give myself a heart attack. Gotta draw the conservation-thingy line somewhere.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

Goats, cows, horses - and lot of other vegetable eating animals.

I don't eat salad, food eats salad. I eat food and get my vegetable from the beef.

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

Skip426, all yuh gotta do is move about 40 miles due west to this side of Johnson Straight (or whatever they now wanna call it) and you will never have to water your lawn again. I mow between storm fronts.

Still have a lawn, but I don't water it in the summer and let it go dormant. If comes back green in the fall when the rains return. We have a neighbor that has pulled theirs and planted a vegetable garden.

The point is one more reason (in addition to Waynes story) to get rid of the lawn and use native plantings.

Let's not take this into a debate (me included ). Wayne posted humor & don't believe he meant to start a "turf war" (pun intended).

I don't cut the grass, I don't fertilize, I don't maintain the flower bed, I don't do any landscaping at all.

However, I have a lawn service guy that is great. He'll do anything the DW or I ask him to do. The only thing he requires is $$.

No need to worry about all that eco stuff, he handles it all. No problem for me.

Also, before any hardwood tree in Texas City can be cut down it requires a permit from the city, even if it is on your land. Them-thar trees is precious around here. I don't trim them either - lawn service guy does that.

Wayne, when we meet, which I sure will happen, remind me to tell you the story of the Oak Bay Gary Oak trees and a silly bylaw.

I've noticed that you've been getting a little wet over on your side of the pond, I haven't had to water here yet, trying to paint the outside of the house, every time I pick up a brush , it rains . Now if only there wasn't a rule about keeping goats/sheep inside the city , so I didn't have to mow.
