Your Own Patch of Green

Urban Green: Mowing the lawn

It’s kind of a joke around our neighborhood–the patch of grass that is our parking strip. It’s almost perfect, and if it wasn’t on a hill, every golfer in the neighborhood would be out putting on it. Kids love it because it feels so good under their feet. People walk by and ask if it’s OK to step on it (of course!). Sometimes neighbors joke, “Oh no, I think I see a mushroom!” I guess you could say our patch of green is a bit of an obssession, which must mean we’re in the right business. If your patch of green is a bit of an obsession too, or if you’d just rather have someone else make it look like it is, we would enjoy the opportunity to love your patch of green as much as we love ours.
