Who here hates it when it rains because it mean you have to mow AGAIN!!!

I swear I hated mowing when I was a kid (dad made me do it) and I hate it now. I swore I was going to have a rock yard like they do in Arizona. (those are bad )

To tell you the truth I love droughts because I don't have to mow, I don't have to weedeat, everybody's grass dies even my jerkwad neighbors that water all the time to try make me look bad, mosquitos , and it makes riding suck. I wish it would just rain right over lakes and water sheds and then all the stupid grass would be dead so no wasting a saturday afternoons mowing when it's just going to grow again and then mow again.

It's stupid it's like making your bed everyday. Why? Your just going to mess it up again 10 to 14 hours later. I mean I could see making it up if you have company coming over but other than that it's retarded to make it everyday imo. My wife makes it everyday so if i come for lunch I have to throw off 10 or so throw pillows and deal with the real tucked in sheets that bother my feet at the end.

Bill, just do what they do in Arizona.
Get rid of your grass and fill your yard with gravel.
You may need to check with your Wife and the HOA first!

lol she probably won't let me. She wouldn't even let me fill in our stupid pool with dirt. So now I am stuck paying some pool dude a 140/mo for somehting I never use.

It's funny anytime one of my friends talks about getting a pool I try my best to talk them out of it. And they end up doing it anyway and then after teh newness wears off they start complaining on how expensive it is and they never use it. You know it's like talking to a bud that is dating a crazy mean chick. You know she's mean and everybody else knows she is mean but your friend blinded by the or attraction or whatever doesn't until she divorces him taking half of his wealth.

I think droughts could be solved with the elimination of 85% of the population. Fish would have plenty of water without all these waste of space humans sucking it all down.

what do you mean fluid? And you like wasting 2 hours on your yard when it's 96 degrees outside? Are you into S&M too?

How about we just start with eliminating liberals first and see what that does. I think it would fix everything.

I live on 33 acres out in the sticks - not a neighborhood overflowing with yard guys. You ought to find a local lawn crew and part with $30-50 a week. It was worth that to me when I lived in Houston.

He can't because then he would be supporting liberal workers. Lol not much diversity in that work force.

That is why I have two riding lawn mowers and a tractor (bush hog).
I have my place in Porter and 40 acres up by centerville...I also have a walk behind lawn mower for tight places...I kind of enjoy riding the mowers and tractor most of the time...every weekend I mow, either at the house or up in the country...

Holy dog ...pick up your feet boys, is freezing over, the rare occurrence of GB and I being 100% in agreement on a subject just happened again. Bill, if you despise the task that much, find yourself a lawn crew (that doesn't conflict with your internal bigotry) and pay the men. I'm a bit OCD about my lawn, so I do it myself, but it's quite a task this time of year.

I used to not water my yard until it started to wilt. Then just enough to keep it alive.
It would go dormant, stop growing and I would only have to mow every other week.

Unless it rained.

Then I'd have to mow like twice a week!

Here's what solved all that for me...
I got divorced, lived in a rent house and paid a guy, Until the damned flood, now I live in an apartment and wake up to the lawn guys on the weekend. It sucks.

I hate lots of rain because it with my immaculate pool chemistry. It does make the grass grow faster but that is the yard guy's problem not mine. Baller!

No kids and beer? Sign me up. It is all about that edge. Do you prefer to edge from grass or concrete side? This has been a debate amongst myself and a few buddies recently.

And I don't mind the rain...keeps the irrigation system from running.

Cold brews, gas cans, headphones jamming my thumbprint station on Pandora, yes please

My yard is sloped irregularly at certain spots so I switch. Mostly i prefer the street/concrete side. From the street I edge but towards the house itís easier for me to be in the grass and get that angle just right.

I laugh when I see yards where the guy just goes way too hard with the edger and thereís a giant platform of dirt showing between the grass and the concrete curb.

If it was $30 to 50 I would do it in a second to support white people that didn't finish highschool ) But i bought the lot next to me and my lot is good size and with weedeatinga and mowing both been quoted $130 to 150. For that much I'll be a white minority for a couple of hours.
