Garden Tuesday – Lawn Woes

Lawn

Guess who is lucky enough to live next to the retired guy who has way too much time to spend on his lawn? 

I want it to be known though, that 99% of the yards in our subdivision look like ours, not his.

You know? I have exactly the very same problem! of Course in Oregon everyone lets their lawn go (except the neighbors) during the 3-4 week "dry" season, then the rain takes care of it for us.. as it already has.

Oh my goodness, we used to live across the road from a guy like that! Too funny. :)

I love it, because - there is a cyclone fence that divides the area where my yard ends and the school yard begins, the difference is the two is major. I do get to look out onto a nice green lawn, filled with birds in the early morning - as long as I look PAST my yard!

I live next door to a landscaper. With a well.
I shall say no more

There's always somebody in the neighborhood whose yard outshines the rest of us. My grass turns brown as a paper bag in the summer, but after a couple of rains it's back to green again.

Lol until I moved 3 years ago, I was just as lucky as you. Every day I would look out at my normal-person lawn and then over to his perfectly mowed (even in stripes!) luscious grassy garden.

Ha - that is too funny. Betcha' ours is browner than yours. LOL

So, maybe he should just fix up your lawn a little to make his look bigger and better!

That's one of the funniest photos you've posted in a while!
Hmmmm. Does it make you want to get out and fertilize or something??

Jo's comment is a hoot.

Ah see, a healthy lawn is a happy lawn, and that lawn doesn't look too happy. Thank you for sharing though. :)

Kat said...

Maybe that green grass will start spreading in your direction!

that's funny! i don't have a lawn, but i can imagine it's a lot of work to make it look like retired guy's.

Oh Pam... Too funny! Thank goodness we don't have that problem. Our neighbors actually has a lawn service that takes care of their lawn and I must say, ours looks better than theirs! ;-) (although, still not as good as your retired guys lawn)!
