Everything is nice and green this time of year in Redding, CA. My lawn is no exception. I have worked hard to spray for weeds or fungus. I have mowed, watered, and fed the lawn as prescribed by my good friend Jeff Haynes at Commercial Landscape Service. I have to say, it is looking pretty good!
One issue I have is that the local dogs seem to really like it too. They frequently come by for a “visit” and sort of roll around under the shade tree and bask in the greenery. Unfortunately, they also leave “deposits”. These are land mines that I usually find with the lawn mower a few days later. When the particular “land mines” are encountered, it makes for a somewhat less than pleasant experience, as the material is… well you know… smushed! I am at a loss for exactly what to do. I don’t want to be mean to the dogs. Truth be told, I kinda like them. I just wish they would play in their own yard.
I was not aware until today that there is even an online game called “Get Off My Lawn”. Here is the link if you wanna’ play. Anyway, I guess I will just keep on mowing and scooping unless and until the dogs move away. I guess it is really not the worst thing that can happen in a neighborhood. At least we don’t have the constant police helicopter activity overhead like they do in East LA.
Happy summer and peace to all y’all!
