We don't really have much lawn in the back anyway, cause of the pool...and the only section of it we do have is in a lot of shade and stays pretty damp - so we planted some elephant ear hostas - which get HUGE.
The lawn in the front is okay - tons of crab grass and shit, but eh. It's green enough and as long as it's trimmed often enough I don't really care. I care more about the trees + shrubs + flowers, etc.

We had huge fields at our old cabin, like Terrence Malick style kids running through tall grass with a setting sun fields. They'd grow naturally and get waist deep (for a 10 year old) till someone would bring down a tractor with a mowing attachment and clear them out. Was pretty fun, especially when you'd find a snake or other small animal. The fields would stay green through the winter and spring and get brown over the summer.
I miss having that at our current cabin... Its just covered in ivy on the hills.
Argh. Now I am getting all nostalgic.

I had a friend in HS who had a huge ass yard..well more like a field yeah, and in the summer we would get a case of beer and take turns using the riding mower, heh.
Then of course we would throw a huge ass bonfire party. She also had a big fucking swimming pool. Man, some good times were had there.

I'm sure many have already seen this, but I couldn't resist sharing, as I laughed so hard it hurt when I read this page earlier.
