I am appreciative of the grass in the backyard where I currently live. In Arizona grass can be non-existent in neighborhoods. Having two dogs I can tell you it is much needed. It also needs to be mowed weekly! I am appreciative that I am able to mow it myself, but also that I have a great person in my life who has volunteered to mow it for me a few times. Having that nice little break, every once in a while, from having to do it means a lot, even if it seems silly for someone to do something you can do.
I love that my dogs can enjoy the grass year around as I plant winter grass during the cooler months. It helps keep the yard cooler than gravel would, and it makes for a lovely yard.
