Heck, I used to mow the green space between my row of hangars and the next row. The City mowed it but only a couple times a year and I liked to to look nicer. I also removed the snow all the way across my taxiway the width of my hangar, but this was mainly so the plow wouldn't push snow up against my hangar door. Of course this was before I sold my airplane last September.

I am happy to report that I have not went back to mow grass or remove snow since then.

There is hope for me after all!!!!

I live on a 4 lane with a median and mow it because I own the property across the road. I routinely walk or drive the Ranger across and I don't want to wade through chest high grass. It only gets mowed twice a year by the state. I have once or twice used the tractor to bush hog from one crossover to the next which are every 1/4 mile. I have to be really bored and wanting to ride the tractor for that.

Easier to find the bodies if it's mowed!

When everybody burned unleaded, I remember reading not to pick blackberries right off the roads because of lead and other contaminants. I would think there are toxic concentrations of something in the median grass.

You mean leaded right? I honestly don't think it would be too big a deal now a days relative to, say, 30 yrs ago.

Businesses, individuals or organizations adopt sections of highway and pick up trash and mow, even plant flowers.

My first though about the mowing was fire hazard - get rid of that dry tall grass/vegetation.

The reason I mowed the side of the road for two reasons, so drivers could see the damned deer, and to give my dog and cats a fighting chance to be seen before they got run over.
