Did you buy them or were they a gift? I have to know for reference.
I may not have the best lawn and I may not have a clue what I’m doing but that’s pretty much all I have to say.

So I’m sitting by the pool enjoying family and friends when I hear my neighbors cutting their lawn. What do I do...get up and cut the front and finish right at dark 😳

I was watching a HyrBrix vid on YouTube, and the wife says,” is that Pete’s House”? Mission 60% complete.
My wife finished mowing the other day and I could tell she was pissed about something. “What’s wrong?” “I couldn’t get my stripes straight coming up the hill so they have a curve to them. It really pissed me off.” Mission 65%. Then she proceeded to tell me that the “Bermuda runners” were growing out in the road. Before she would just say the grass is growing in the road. Mission 70% complete.

It’s your birthday and your parents call you and have some ideas for what they want to get you for your birthday. Since I had back surgery recently most of it involved things to help my back. I of course said that I needed an extra set of blades for my mower. So Wednesday I’ll be putting brand new blades on my mower before I mow. My back can get better while my lawn looks freaking awesome.

She will probably have her own account on here then. And maybe I get to buy a reel mower. Or she leaves me because the lawn isn’t up to her standards. It might be a “monkey touch monolith” moment.

A chunk of sod falls out of a wheel well at work and you take it, give it some water, trim it with scissors (HOC ~ 1.25"), edge it into a nice little square, blow it off with a blow gun, and then yell at another tech for driving a vehicle over it. :lol:

You spot some spurge and bend over to hand pull it only to remember that it is not normal to weed the median of a random parking lot.

Was totally just instinct, and as I was bending down to grab the weed realized "this isn't my yard, this is Tractor Supply."
