Keeping up with the neighbours.

Actually, this is something I won't do. Here in Cumbria we have had so much rain during June and July that everything has grown so much. Don't get me wrong, the garden isn't wild, just well grown. The grass gets cut once a week, weather permitting. The trouble is , next door is cutting her grass so much and weeding and sweeping. She cut her grass last Wednesday, then again on Saturday and she's at it again now.
This is making the Mr. Twitchy and he wants our garden titivated. He's never been much of a gardner but her antics have made him feel inadequate.

I've included a pic of her grass to demonstrate my point.

These are the same neighbours who ripped out bushes and tress and flower beds when they moved in. Replacing them with turfed lawns that she demands to be mowed three times a week, and I'd he won't, she will. She complains too if the neighbours on either side, is being one lot, don't mow their lawns.

My lawn gets done once a week. I am not a believer in having it cut to within an inch of its life every few days, I feel once a week is sufficient.


  1. What I forgot to say is that this pic is the front lawn, and she is now cutting that. The pic was taken before she started doing it and as the pic shows, the lawn does not need mowing.

  2. Once a week is perfectly reasonable. I know what you mean about those types of people who are very uptight about maintaining a "perfect" lawn. :)

  3. Oh my Goddess, she's at it again!!!!!! Gods, she mowed it three days ago!!!!
