    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
