Do you keep on mowing your grass, as much as you keep up with your garden?

Mowing the grass is probably one of my least favorite activities. I either do it or have it done ever other week. I find that the grass just grows so fast. I prefer to work in the garden around my flowers and vegetables plants. I feel like it benefits me more then mowing the grass.

I have a solar powered lawn mower which does the job daily. It is automatic and needs little attention. It saves me a lot of time that I use to weed my crops . I do weed my crops at least daily.

Lawn mowing is really left as my husbands job, while I tend to the garden. It really depends on the time of year as to the maintenance level though. If we are talking about right now in winter, our lawn doesn't grow much if at all, so the need for mowing is virtually nil. However, weeds still pop up in the garden beds all the time so I am constantly tending to those.

Yes, I do! I would almost say I am borderline OCD with keeping the yard trimmed and weed eat. I try to mow the grass every three days. I have a lot of ground, and it takes about 2 1/2 hours to mow on the rider. I make sure I do patterns as well weather its striped or diagonal in the yard. I would bet I spend as much money in gas for my mower as I do in my car.

we have to maintain the grass here because if it gets too long then we will get snakes and I don't like those at all! I love the idea of fake grass but someone told me that they found a snake anyway and that rules that out for me

Yes we live in town. If our grass isn't cut we get a fine. I like the look of a well manicured lawn anyway. So we cut it a couple times a week. Not much of a lawn though, it only takes about 10 minutes.

have shade so grass grows slowly. cut it when it is past my ankles normally. so nope keep up with gardens more than lawn. but do have a lot to cut when I finally do get at it.

When a poster with 2400 posts and as many likes misses the date stamp I will not only say @zigs @Becky fix the date viewability but I will also reply. I have found the same fungi and bacteria affecting my grass as I have my garden. In fact I believe it is an easier thing for fungi to attack grass and vector to my garden. I cut the grass to avoid and dry out the fungal attack surrounding my garden.

it was sitting at the bottom, under the line "similar threads" so answered it. don't pay attention to the date.

What do you have in mind? I presume you are referring to this recent topic, but that was in relation to more recent timestamps (ie when it says 'Yesterday' or '45 minutes ago'). It's a difficult one from our point of view - we can't force people to pay attention to timestamps, and if it was made more prominent then it would stand out more than the rest of the post (which wouldn't be ideal).

I read zigs response and it occured to me that perhaps a bolder or larger or colored font could be used in the current field or perhaps if the code for the field were moved, it might display at least the year to save space on title only lines or be part of the title when the similiar subjects pop up.

I agrees, and would add the word likeable to your word relative. A store of knowledge is important, but a store of current knowledge with history is more potent

I'm not sure which response you are referring to, do you mean Ian's response? Also are you only referring to the time/date at the top of the page, not in each post?

Whups I meant Ian. I believe it was in a post where SeniorCitizen was on the same subject again and then I ran across this thread being revived. Like Esther says it is a relevant subject however. Now please realize I am almost exclusively on mobile web, and I know that code often gets reduced, but below this post is a link to similiar threads that have nothing but titles. It does draw one into thinking it is a live discussion rather than a preservation from history. Obviously when you click one you can see the date unless it is a long post, in which case you cannot see the date. It does take some work to get around to a current conversation without a date flag. It still happens to me too; Esther just got caught in one so I mentioned it to her since she works very hard on precision.

Interesting @DirtMechanic . Don't see myself as getting caught anywhere. If I note a subject, however hanging out there or ongoing current and I believe I can add to it, it, then so be it. we have lots of "new member" that start thus there is lots of good information here, perhaps put on pause, that should be revived. What bothers me more, is if a same thread is started by a new member (not their fault) and there has been some great discussion about it already. Why re-invent the wheel .

I agree. On the other side, I read a novel of a post on the subject of my mower transmission. It was thorough, took several days to read at the page length and I left more knowledgeable because every broad topic was brought into the thesis of one particular transmission repair. Either way is fine to me as long as it is searchable.

I love my grass...its a plant to you know....without it I feel there is no garden...its sets the canvas for everything else.
Wither it be tidy or meadow like thats up to the individual...I stand firmly in the tidy court....I aerate, scarify, weed and feed the grass (I wouldn't call it a lawn) and I have to cut it every other day. Why..well I use an old hand push rotary mower and if it gets too long it snags up...but its only a small patch so I can have it done in 15mins. I do everything by hand no mechanical or electrical aids...I feel electric mowers and the likes of pull the goodness out of the grass so a simple lightweight mower suits my situation...leaving me plenty of time for other things :ROFLMAO:
