Friday Wisdom – The Lawn

The grass is finally growing here in the desert and I had to mow the lawns this week so here’s everything I know about lawn care:

The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence because they water the lawn over there.

You can make a lot of money removing leaves from people’s lawns – you can just rake it in.

At the garden center they are selling a new chicken-proof lawn. They say it’s impeccable.

I had to fire my lawn care service – they just weren’t cutting it.

I saw my neighbor slumped over his lawn mower crying. He’ll be fine – he just went through a rough patch.

I saw a guy secretly dumping top soil on his lawn – the plot thickens …

The Hulk grows a great lawn – well, he does have green fingers.

I should cut the grass more often, but it can be hard to get mow-tivated.

I have to say one good thing about snow – it makes my lawn look as good as my neighbor’s.

My gardener want to bring a cow to my house. He called it a lawn moo-er.

  2. This one hits home. Our lawn is awful. The new neighbors have done a terrific job making theirs look nice. I can only wonder how much they look down on our yard. :/ I guess we should try that whole “watering” thing too. πŸ˜‰

    It really is the power of positive thinking when snow makes your lawn look just as good as your neighbour’s.

    Wow–you outdid yourself with the lawn and mowing jokes. You reminded me that my little brother at age two or three called the task “lawn the mow.” Almost as funny (to us) as your jokes and puns here!

    Love the entire list on this one, and jealous you’re already mowing out there. April/May is always gamble-time here in Colorado – when to fill the sprinkler pipes with water. Can’t be too soon or water turns to ice and then you have serious problems.
