A neighbor was fertilizing his grass this week. I thought: Is it time for me to start getting my lawn in shape?
Of course. This is what I’ve done every spring. It’s what you do if you have a home with a yard, in America.
So you compromise. You will let the back lawn be what it wants to be, because that’s where the boys in the neighborhood like to play. You will be attentive to the front lawn, however, because that’s what everyone sees. You don’t want to be that guy, after all. At least not yet.
