So I am out working in my yard today, and my 76 year old male neighbor
comes outside, and he starts sprinkling grass seed all over his
treebelt. The problem is, his treebelt is completely covered in
rocks!!!!! He has what appears to be 1/2 to 3/4 inch rocks/stones across
his entire treebelt, which is about 50 feet long, and 5 feet wide.
He had someone put the rocks there, on top of the topsoil, about 3 years
ago when he had trouble keeping Green grass on his treebelt ( he always
SCALPED the grass when mowing it! ). I like this old fart, and I TRY to
help him out when he needs it, like shoveling his snow, bringing out his
trash barrel for him, etc. etc.
Anyway, I offer to help him take the rocks off his treebelt for him, so
that the grass can grow there, but he says no, he "wants the grass to
grow through the rocks". HUH!? I tell him, even if some grass grows
there, HOW the heck is he going to mow the grass with a treebelt full of
rocks, without DESTROYING his lawnmower!! But he didn't understand what
I was saying, and just kept saying that he wants to grow grass with the
rocks still there??
I think the guy has lost it, and feel bad for him. I also feel like just
going over there and taking the rocks off his treebelt for him, but
don't want him to get mad when he sees that his precious rocks are gone!
He threw about a half bag of Kentucky Bluegrass seed all over his
treebelt, and then tried to rake it in, and then he watered it!
WHAT THE HECK!?
What a mess it's going to look like, when in a few weeks, the treebelt
is all rocks with new grass growing around them!!!!!
Here is some pics at the link below of what the rocks covering his
treebelt look like:
