We don’t fertilize our yard since it is just prairie grass but I would swear it is on speed. We mowed the three acres we have to mow on Friday and now on Tuesday it needs to be mowed again. Looks like we haven’t even touched it! I just refuse to mow more often then once every two weeks though because that is just too much work to do every week. I do the large areas with the riding lawnmower while my husband does all the push mower areas and it takes both of us about two hours to get it done. I can’t see doing that more than twice a month especially in the heat of summer.
Living on acreage has good points and bad points and having to mow that much is definitely one of the bad points.
