When are you going to mow your lawn?

On Saturday, my neighbor walked by my house and asked when I was going to mow my lawn. He knew that I had just finished mowing it. Yes, my lawn is long by most people's standards even after mowing. After mowing, it's about three inches long. Before mowing about it's about four to four and half inches long.

Why so long? There are a few reasons. First the long blades of the grass shade the ground, keeping it cooler which means it needs less water. A cool, shaded ground prevents weeds from growing.

So, my lawn might be long, but it's lush, green and not needing a lot of maintenance. So, raise that blade and let it grow.

Make your day a good one.
