Humans have ruined lawns

>in the beginning, there was grass
>LONG grass
>colorful grass with flowers on top
>Each blade of grass, every flower pedal, every stem in which a plant may grow, finly crafted and tuned by mother nature herself

FF thousands of years later

>apes learn how to create machines
>mechanical apparatuses fueled by, well, fuel
>figure out we like things when they spin
>put a blade on that thing
>kill thousands

and so the lawnmower was born

>society morphed around the idea of "perfection"
>every blade of grass now just one in the sea of green instead of a beautiful show of mother natures talent
>The apes tax and berate those who do not confine to such ideologies of cut grass, deem the land less valuable and fit for one to own
>now here is the big idea

don't mow your lawn

>get your neighbors in on it too
>let mother nature reclaim what was once theirs
>"BbbbUT it wont look GOOD though!!!! It REEKS of chaos, and there is no uniformity whatsoever!!!" scream the landlords
>get notice of the city that the neighborhood has no mowed lawns
>forced to lower property value while still keeping most of the quality of the neighborhood
>literally nothing else needs to change

It literally only a benefit to not mow the lawn

    Most people use a fraction of their lawn. If you stop mowing your lawn for a few months you'll see the actual used/trampled areas. Mow those areas for a cleaner look and then replace the rest with easy to care for native perennials and be done with it.

      Then sow the flowers and manually remove the brambles.

    Clover lawns are better anyway, they need less water, less fertilizer, bees can actually use them, and they're still nice for walking on and for dogs to pee in.

      Why stop at clover though? There are many beautiful short growing native flowers you can add to the mix

    Cutting down vegetation to create a living space is natural human nesting behavior. The only fucked up part is wasting water, seed, and herbicide to maintain a monoculture that’s not suited to the climate. It would not kill anyone to have clover, moss, and a few shade trees, or to forego it all in the fucking desert.

    TLDR: listen to your dad and mow the lawn gay!

    >arguing about what's best to do when you carpet your yard in grass, one of the worst fucking plants you could use, instead of native plants that guzzle less water and have deeper root systems that actually help the integrity of the soil
    it was already over for you. go ahead and mow your frankenyard. or don't. not like it matters when grass lawns are literally just a scottish meme.

      I grew up in the suburbs and one of my dad's favorite phrases was "I didn't have a son so I could mow my own god damned yard!" So from about the age of 10-19 I was the landscaper.
      When I finally moved out on my own I lived in apartments and after a while I got kind of nostalgic for yard work.
      Then I started renting a place with a yard, and I was half way through mowing the lawn for the first time in years, in the hot ass fucking sun, when I had a moment of clarity that there was literally nothing I actually missed about this ball breaking horse shit.

          I was born in the early 80's, and me and my next door neighbor shoveled driveways in the winter, and mowed lawns in the summer for money. The only people who have done more yard work than me have names like Chuy Hernandez.
          And now that I don't have to do that, I don't miss it, and I also see better uses for the land than ugly lawns that die and turn brown because water restrictions caused by everyone insisting on having those putting greens in the first place.
          But that's an entirely different discussion about water rights and civil engineering.
          I'd much rather see landscaped yards with native plants grasses, and trees.
          And it isn't like zoomers play outside so you're not taking that away from them.

            places like california are fucked because they haven't built new reservoirs since the 70s. it's the mismanagement, not the lawns.
