There is something extremely satisfying about doing yard work. I think it must have something to do with the feeling of instant gratification you get after seeing the results of your sweat and labor. The girl and I got our first lawn mower together and I was finally able to mow our lawn for the second time (the first time it was done by a very nice friend of ours while we were out of town) this past weekend! I did a lot of research on how to maintain a green lawn and found some useful articles about how to identify the type of grass you have and how tall you should mow your grass. I decided on a pretty standard 3″ cut and will see where it goes from there.
