Used to let the amazon run wild. Then it just got annoying, so I trimmed. Then after my redwood made his home in a fleshcave (fuck metaphors), I scorched da earf. For years, not a single blade of grass grew. Now I trim because it's just too much fucking effort to make it completely..grass..less. I still keep the landscape trimmed for the most part. Might start scorching again given a recent development with a lady-friend's lawn. Talk about a well kept garden...whew!

English is not my primary language so screw codes. I shave my balls and trim the hair above my penis.

Person 1: hmmm, this room could be bigger.
Person 2: yeah, this couch is a little close to the TV.
Person 3: I'm with you, I could swear this room is pretty cramped.
Xanthul: uuuuh, there's a fucking elephant in the corner?!?



Anyway, I've trimmed for quite a while, but recently tried out the minimalist approach. Stripped away the lawn and hedges completely, just left the big proud garden gnome standing his ground. It's definitely interesting. Can't say I've had anyone around to comment on it though.

I fear for my favourite oak tree should I decide to scorch the earth.

For now I just trim the hedges.

No cutting, no trimming.  It's like Wild Kingdom over here.

Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.
