Agreed. I’ve got good neighbors and they still annoy me a lot of the time.

$725 a week?!? Holy hell! You need to start a landscaping company on the side at those rates!

Yeah, that's why I mentioned that we typically have smaller lots up here. My lawn mowing runs about $50 a week, but I only have a 1/2 acre lot. I certainly wouldn't want to pay $725 a week for mowing.
Why not have grass just around the house and leave the rest natural with some minimal upkeep here and there? I know a big lot that's groomed looks great but as you mentioned that's a lot of work and expensive to keep up.

Dang brother. That's a beautiful house. Just looked at the listing for it, love it. We've been in the hunt for a house like that here but it is next to impossible since 99% of this place is swamp

Thanks! It all came together really quickly, which is nice. We found it on July 30th, and close on September 30th.

Congrats man! Sounds like life is good right now

I have 0 complaints.

Especially since after buying her the house of her dreams, I get some fun toys for my racecar!

I didnt do a huge area and rock still cost me a ton but I there's no way in hell I was messing with mulch. Im just disappointed how many weeds still upgrowing despite weed cloth etc...
For some strange reason, when I had rock out front for landscaping, with thick weed-block material, I got way more weeks than when I switched to mulch (also with weed-block material).

Naturally my wife is most excited about the kitchen

While I'm most excited about the basement.

Congratulations man! I guess if you are ever struggling for places to keep toys in the garage, I think you have a few spots at your disposal lol
