Got Weed?

It's official... I'm that house that everyone on the block looks at and curses about. I found the above "NOTICE" hanging from my front door.

In my defense I haven't been able to get...

OK... never mind. There is no excuse. I am just a bad neighbor. And it's not the first time. Or the second time.

Does anyone have a rusted out, broken down old car I can put up on blocks on my front lawn to complete the picture?

OK ... those people definitely need to take a valium. Don't they know a wildflower garden when they see one? It's SO much greener than a lawn anyway ... water conservation is a big selling feature. They need to be educated that your way is the new trend.

The "Mow the Lawn" police are WAY behind the times. Meadows are "the new black"!

OR ...
You just need to keep me as your Yard Boy is all. ;o{)

Lawn? What lawn? Those "code enforcement" guys come around here too hasseling people to fix and repair their property. Some of these places are nearly 100 years old and folks are retired, on fixed incomes or just plain poor. I agree with Pick it's time to hire some hot yard boys.

okay, you are a nice guy, but mow the weeds already...you find time to work out at the gym, just consider this a part of your aerobic exercise...part of living on this planet is having some consideration for those around you...it doesn't have to be cookie cutter the same, but mowing the weeds won't kill you.

Fuck off - your lawn is your business.

Tell those officer to go piss in a corner in a circular room.

Your property - your rules.

This is why I am so glad that people can't see our property. *cough*

Um, we love meadows! And nature! The birds and deer love our property! Of course we have > 9 acres of it and we do mow some areas around the house at least once a year.

I agree with Pick. Meadows are the new black. Plus, we do have some vehicles we could give you for your yard. Have you ever considered hanging an engine block from a tree? I have seen that also in some yards...

Nick,

Ug! Your yard is a mess. You really should send that photo to one of those HGTV home improvement shows. Don't they have one for the yuckiest house on the block? I think your yard would definately qualify.

Instead of mowing, why don't you spray the whole thing with weed and lawn killer, put some beach sand on it and a little kiddie pool painted black and stick some koi fish in it. Call it a little bit of ocean in your own front yard. Just don't let the police catch you shoveling some of that fine beach sand into the back of yor truck though. LOL

Hugs!!!

Um...is that the FRONT yard? lol too funny. We've gotten one of those notices a time or two. Now we pay the neighbor kid to do it until our son gets older. lol
