If I didn't mow in May I'd have to get someone to cut, rake and round bale my yard. We have to mow from March to November around here. And I don't like it one bit.

I'll do "No Mow May" again this year. It's getting increasingly popular in cities around Wisconsin. It works particularly well for people like me that don't like to mow.

I'm sure the only thing they care about is keeping property values up, so they can stick it to you with higher property taxes.

Bob I thought you guys had friendly government in Missouri where I live no one cares if your grass is 5 foot high I cut to suit myself my point being the government sucks to an extent no matter where one lives

NO BS official would tell us when to mow our yards. Not if he wants to stay employed anyway. We had a dog Catcher that was going around shooting strays. Until one too many times they were Hunters Hunting Dogs. They torched his truck and he was fired and prosecuted. I own a weedeater but not a Mower. Why should I ?? I have 6 head of Horses. They MOW and FERTILIZE at the same time and I do not have to buy the Fertilizer!! Show me where TORO or any others can do that while I sit and watch.


God please keep they 19 fallen UBB miners out of trouble up there.

I hate to mow when there are thousands of honeybees in front of my mower. I started to carry a piece of lathe wood on the mower to scare those away when they get thick on the clover. I know they won't fly away in time. Sure has slowed down my mowing when they get that way.

I have a neighbor like Lugnut down the road that has nothing better to do then ride around and act like he is doing something. I am off in the woods so no one can see my place from the highway. I hate to mow and waste 3 1/2 hrs. of my time. I am thinking about not mowing an acre or two maybe once a month. It will give the deer, turkey and ghogs more grazing and pecking area.

Who says trappers aren't conservation minded folks? smile

Had a neighbor that religiously mowed his yard every Saturday, took him hours, then off to the volunteer fire dept. Sunday was wash the cars, all morning, then off to the FD clubhouse....
Anything to not spend waking hours with his wife... grin

I would have no problem complying with No Mow May since my lawn will still probably still be snow covered in May if this weather keeps up.


I'm just happy to be here! Today I'm as young as I'll ever be and and older than I've ever been before!

Stupidity just like all things made up by the govt overuse of insecticide works over pollinators , you take 1 ounce of Warrior and 15 gal of water and it will kill all the bugs on the acreage sprayed , mowing isn't even a factor in this equation in my opinion but what do I know

My experience is similar when it comes to clover. I don't know what buffalo grass is.

I mow every week unless there's a drought and it's not growing. I watch and SMH at the clowns who do this "no mow May" nonsense try to mow after it's over. Some people never learn.
Of course the snakes, chipmunks, mice, rats, etc. love no mow May. More hiding places for them.

Get a wife. Mine mows and she also cleans and cooks. Lol

Haha
