I hate grass!!!
Let’s just say that I have done my work out for the day. I have just passed the last 2 hours pulling that bloody grass out of my 2 garden beds. Apparently I have burned 489 calories. Because I became so angry with the grass would probably worth 100 calories more at least!
Definition of grass: weed with roots long enough to knit a sweater, grows where you don’t want it and refuses to grow where you want it.
Where I am from we don’t treat the grass, we don’t expect our yard to look like a golf course, we don’t put chemicals on it either. We just mow it and if it’s green it’s ok. Some people hate dandelion back home too but not me, it’s part of nature.
Where I live now, I see people pushing the mower and carrying a bottle of weed killer with them. They have to fertilise, re-seed, etc. If you just let nature do its work you will get a beautiful thick weed lawn that won’t need watering,won’t need fertiliser, won’t need re-seeding and won’t get eaten by bugs. The down side of it is that you look like the “bad” family of the street and it’s not good when you resale your house.
In our new house I guess we are going to go with the majority and “treat” the lawn so our investment gets a good resale price when we want to move out of here. If it’s our ticket out of here then I am alright with the weed killing thing. I will just put the other part of me in a ward-robe for a few years. I know there is weed puller tools I can buy so we could try that instead of shutting up the “green” voice inside me.
