I went outside today, and surprisingly, it's only this long
Check out our weeds.
Americans are seriously too into their gardens. They're just a waste of space here, and occasionally (like every six years) we take a look at it. No hosing down your grass to keep it nice crap. Plus, it's probably 1/100th of a size of an American garden. Stuff you Australians, your whole country is your back yard.
We use mower with a catcher. We'll spread it on trees if we need to otherwise straight in the bins...We don't have the woods or a forest that close...there is one down the hill, but it seems to fare well without us doing anything.
