    "Instead of a manicured lawn and garden, Beth and Craig
    Sinclair planted 150 trees and other native plant species in
    front of their bungalow. The couple, who moved to Smiths Falls
    from Seattle about a decade ago, said natural lawns like theirs
    are common in their former city."

    where i live the houses are all on hills and there's a lot of elderly people. so they have these wildflowers and other weird stuff grow on their hills and back yards so they dont have to cut grass.

    meanwhile i cut grass twice a week sometimes.

    my neighbor's backyard really sets off my allergies. it makes me feel like total crap and most medications make me feel just as bad.

    i'd rather cut grass.

    THAT yard that those people have is just plain ugly as hell.
    i don't blame neighbors for complaining.

    Most lawns and gardens look like hell in the spring.

    I think my lawn looks like paradise in Spring. The grass grows tall and that makes my
    horses so so happy. You can tell their mood improves so much in srping after they
    start running and bucking around.

    Then they call you when they are tired of horsing around and want you to take them
    back to their barn for a nap. Spring and summer rock.

    LOL. I can picture it. As you may know, my neighbour across the
    road has some fine equine specimens.

    I just made a short film of my "long way home" as I pull into
    my driveway. What the views greatly miss are animals enjoying
    the open spaces and the grass. I have to upload the 4min file
    first - then I'll send you a link.
