    lol, We're all guilty of it sometimes but just like the cartoon its self destructive - (instead of stuff) all that results is your time and energy getting sucked up. remember this one?

    This has always been my motto. Back in the early 80s I would edge my lawn with Roundup. My neighbor called me the Adolph Eichmann of the plant world.

    I'm a huge fan of Monk, I lived with a friend who was a bit like that (monkish) for a while.

    Reminds of the guy with OCD who would comb out the fringe on his living room area rug to make it all straight. He eventually got treatment and overcame this compulsion. Then his wife started doing it.

    Out here in the "Desert-Southwest" xeriscape is the answer. BUT most want a small patch of green to break the monotony so a few square ft. of Buffalo Grass that need mowed every couple weeks by hand do the trick. :-)

    "It brings order to a chaotic world in some small way."

    Yes, what self-respecting home shop machinist would object to order, regularity, and precision? I don't cut my grass that way, but if I had a zero-turn mower I probably would. You know, even farmers in some of the more prosperous parts of the country are very careful about the straightness of their rows and the neatness of their fence lines, lest they catch some unwanted ribbing in the local cafe during slow times.

    I have to agree. There is no bigger time waster than having to mow the law two or three times a week in the spring, it's always wet and it grows like crazy. Compounded by having to rake or sweep up all the clumps that clog the mower deck next time around.

    I used to be a proponent of that back in the 70’s till it damn near killed me, but they were different chemicals!
