Lawn Mullet

I pulled this from the archive. I wrote this a few years back. I am now reformed and perfect in every way according to all laws, ordinances and codes.
Yes. It is true.

I just mowed the zoisya in my front lawn for the third time this year. The front is short and acceptable by society. The scrubby dutch neighbors that literally scrub the oil stains off the street in front of their house have been keeping their eye on this southsider's lawn. I have been lax, but I just keep mowing the front lawn.

But the back is another story. It is like a wild unfettered party. I have yet to even take the mower into the back yard. The grass is up to my knees in some parts of the back yard. It is fun, loose and wild. Yes, the lawn where I first captured the Hoosierweight Belt has gone all wild.

Short in the front, long in the back.

Business up front, party in the back.

But I don't take it too crazy and let it loose in the front. I don't want to become something that will cause problems with everybody. But the back yard, that is another story.

Long live the short-long! I suggest all of South City to let this trend os the zoisya lawn mullet take hold. We will be proud of our south city sho-loe.
