My eyesore yard and reasons for it...
Friday, June 29, 2012
My husband has Alzheimer's and has lost what little ambition he had for yard work. He said the back yard didn't matter cause you can't see if from the street. (Wrong!) We have nosey neighbors on both sides and they are also worried about our terrible weeds spreading to their yards.
I have been trying to talk my husband into doing a "better job" on the yard patrol but I don't think he "gets it."
Soo anyhow my daughter said I should mow (I could do that), but I am afraid of the gas powdered brush whacker I bought and also decided it is too dangerous for my husband to use. Luckily his grandson will be coming back to finish off the weeds and re-mow the lawn as it was quite long when he dide it last week and it has popped up unevenly and needs to be spruced up. When he is here I hope to get him to clean out our gutters which won't work at all because there is so much debris in them.
I am really surprised the neighbors didn't report us sooner as the weeds were about 3 feet high and the notice from the city said no weeds or grass can be 10 inches high.
I think the neighbors don't want to say anything to our faces cause they might be asked to help us out somehow (fat chance of that).
So tomorrow the yard will be "legal" again and I can quit worrying until about 10 days from then when it will need mowing and whacking again.
