    Dude is being nice and trying to help his derelict neighbor. Take care of the stuff you own, it isn't hard.

    That may be, but if somebody is offering to help with it, it clearly ain't in good shape lol.

    You just happened to hit one of my pet peeves. Getting mad/annoyed when people offer to help. Dude is trying to do you a solid, and you get all annoyed and huffy about it? Those types of offers are what helps make good communities. Sounds like you have a good neighbor, tbh.

    And I can’t stand when people let their yard and house go to ****. It looks ugly and brings down the feel and value to the street. It reeks of laziness tbh. Which I know GF isn’t but I feel proud of keeping a nice yard and house.

    The dude didn't want to mow my lawn for me. And I don't want my lawn to be short. I don't like short lawns. My lawn mower is set to the highest setting and I actually mow every other week. When this happened it had been raining A LOT (wettest spring on record in the valley) so my lawn had been growing more than normal.

    I didn't get huffy. I told him no thanks and then when he offered again I told him "I've got it."

    Can you imagine if I had been like "Sure, come on over and mow my lawn. Thanks! I'm good with every other week if that works for you." I mean really, can you imagine that?

    EVERY OTHER WEEK? My goodness man. I'd say something too.

    If I had the time, I'd mow my lawn twice a week. I can't imagine every other. That's awful. Full offense intended.

    Eh
    Depends on the lawn, soil, rain vs sunshine ratio, etc.

    My lawn grows slow as ****. Every other week is plenty. In fact sometimes when I mow it (I usually do about every other week) I can't even tell where I have already mowed and where I haven't mowed yet. I use a pretty short setting on my lawnmower.

    Main thing to remember though is that not every lawn is the same in every part of the country. There are different types of grass, soil, environments, etc.
    Utah is actually a desert. (Not sure if you knew that or not)

    lol

    sorry you're so triggered.

    If I had to mow twice a week I'd just burn my lawn down. Lawn is like the most boring **** in the world. I don't think grass looks nice. My house has a lawn because it came that way, but I'd NEVER EVER put a lawn in where one didn't exist. Eventually I will get rid of my front lawn and be done with it.

    I’ll send pics of my lawn once it’s cut. My backyard is almost exactly what I’ve wanted.

    I'd have made a separate offer perhaps suggested an exchange? Maybe he has a daughter? Can't stand people who feel like they can rock up to somebody else's home and lecture them about trivial things like their lawn. Sure if you'd popped a burning cross out the front I'd probably politely throw a brick through your window but that's just about good neighborly etiquette


    Twice a week? That's verging on a fetish. Fortunately I haven't mowed a lawn in years since I discovered you can hire other people to do it.

    Almost my perfect idea of a back yard, BBQ, out door table and a small herb garden. Nature, like children just gets in the ****ing way.

    Lol. Brudder, I have a degree in crop sciences. I know a thing or two about how crops grow, and temperate zones. If you want, I can go very into detail on soil types, why some take water better, leach more water, bind nutrients, etc.. this is kinda my ****. I'll put it this way...I know how to grow plants like you know how to lake fish in Utah. I'm a cotdamn licensed expert.

    Flat out, if you can get away with mowing your grass every other week and still have it not be too tall, you are starving it of either water, nutrients, or most likely both.

    Ah. The classic "UR TRIGGERED HERP" attack. I'm not, lol. Just giving you ****.

    I didn't say you need to mow your lawn twice a week, I would only do that bc I'm anal. Once a week is good for a well maintained lawn.

    Your lawn isn't well maintained. I'm sorry, but it isn't, and people who don't take good care of their possessions rub me the wrong way. A neighbor with a yard like yours would drive me nuts.

    I pay someone to mow my lawn every other week. They edge, trim the plants, etc. 25 bucks a pop. Absolutely worth it.

    But it must be said that maintaining a green lawn, unless you live in a place that gets ample rain, is a huge waste of water. Better to get landscape more like the natural landscapes for your area.

    But the thing is that I'm no expert on lake fishing in Utah and most definitely not in other states. I know the lakes (and rivers) that I do fish really well but not all lakes and not all rivers. Cause they all different.
    You never been to my house doe. I have great coverage with my sprinkling system (basically ever part of my yards are double or even triple covered) and I have each station watering for 45 minutes straight every 3rd night.
    I lack shade which has a big effect. Some parts of my lawn grow really fast and other parts very slow. Even in my own yard there are different parts that grow differently. Lol at you thinking that you know how often everyone else's lawns need to be mowed when they differentiate so much that in fact the same lawn in the same property needs to be mowed differing frequencies.
