I Fought the Lawn and the Lawn Won

Somebody else's Experience is called "I Wish My Lawn Was Emo So It Would Cut Itsself" - Now THAT's Funny !!! 42 People

    This Isn`t Rock Science...

    I have a fear of lawnmowers. In grade 7 my parents `made me` mow the lawn as part of my chores and I HATED it. We had a huge long backyard and it took forever to mow. But the scariest part was when I`d mow over a rock. It would make a horrendous noise that scared the  crap...

    OMG Someone Kill Me Now.

    First, my lawn is HUGE and all I ask is that one day it not be ENTIRELY SAND.  Actually, only the sides and back are sand.    There is a small patch of heavenly green Saint Augustine grass in the front yard which I am trying to keep alive.  It is under the oak...

    Organic Something... Wouldn't Call It a Lawn Though

    Because we have two little kids I've been keeping our lawn organic since we moved in three years ago.  I can't begin to estimate the time and money I've spent on it.  Overseeding.  Composted manure top-dressing.  Organic fertilizer.  Tons upon tons of...

    Godd4mn Lawnmower...

    Our back garden is huuuuuuuuuuuuge, seriously it is. We hadn't cut the grass for months so it wasn't exactly a simple job. We managed to get it done but my hands were covered in blisters and my back was killing me - whereas the lawn got a haircut. Seems I got the worse deal...

    But I Reaped the Benifits!

    By my early teens, mowing the lawn was my responsibility. But only for a BRIEF time. We discovered after the first mow-around, that my skin was VERY sensitive to freshly cut grass. Ironically, you'd think it would affect my legs, feet, or arms that was hit by the grass, but...

    My Parents' Big Lawn Set Me Up

    I once tried running and doing circle kicks at the same time across my parents' lawn. I tripped and hurt my foot and tumbled through the grass. Another time I accidently hit a golf ball too hard with a putting iron (yes, the one you use to make tiny shots when you're on the green...
