    So.............we pretty much haven't had to mow at all. All season long. The grass is as brown and dead as James Brown himself.

    I think it was......2, 3 weeks ago now, we got some solid rain. So some "patches" came in. I opted to mow the lawn, but I don't believe in mowing the brown dead shit - so I just veered all over the lawn taking out the patches.

    My PP literally ran over an acre and a half, to take me off the mower. Telling me what a lawn-mowing retard I was. My "lines" weren't correct. I was "making a mess". OF WHAT????? THERE WAS NO GRASS.

    Fucking guy literally pulled me off the mower, and I'm now banned from mowing the lawn.

    I think he's a moron. I get the whole "nice lines" and shit - but if you've got nothing to mow....you take out the patches.

    Go ahead. :umunch:

    Get some soy sauce and paint sone lines on the dead grass. Green lawn gets green lines; brown lawn get grown lines.

    Damn spell checker: how does soy become DYI?

    The same. Just again.

    Our grass is pretty brown in spots as well. I think I mowed our lawn once last month. I don't think it's necessary to mow over the dead stuff. :dontknow:

    here that had their landscaped crushed rock painted green.

    THANK YOU!

    He literally ran over an acre and a half, to take me off the mower - I can't lie, key.........when I saw him coming my way, I veered every way I could on that mower, to make him chase me harder. :giggle:

    But now I'm banned from mowing the lawn.

    OH DEAR! :rofl:

    Three acres and September? Brown with longer green patches doesn't look any worse than brown with short green patches.
    Let it alone.
