Looks horrible (general discussion)

We had a spell of rain a few weeks ago that dropped 13+" on us, then last weekend it rained some more so we didn't get our lawn mowed and you can imagine how well it grew.

Yesterday was warm, sunny, with a breeze and the damn stuff was still glistening with dew drops at 3:00 PM.

Mowed anyway and it literally looks like a hay field. I doubt I'll be able to clean it up by the end of the mowing season and really don't care but it sure looks like crap.

Coffee still tastes just as good on the porch so I will persevere.

Careful, you'll get a nasty-gram from the Homeowners Association!

And no Christmas card from the lawn care affiliation! That'll show him.

Ron a good way to dress it up is raise the deck and go back over but at a faster pace. Kinda evens it out in a dressier look. Will work in a pinch. Or run back over it with a lawn sweeper. I've done both before I installed mulching blades and closed off the discharge. And don't forget to take hydration breaks. :-D :beer:

Never fear...you can salvage the looks to keep the HOA away, stash some for future use, or sell it to the sheepster this winter.

You already have the mower.
Now for the rest of your needs:

The Rake

Useful all purpose machine. This Hay Pusher can be used for stacking and possibly has many other uses for those of questionable character.

The Baler

Always trying to help those in need or mentally handicapped.

I will be vacationing at a undisclosed location for the next several??? months and totally unavailable.

That's fine. You take your time getting back. I suspect the grass will still be laying there when you get back and can bale it for me.....
