I wish they did that here... the back of my place used to look like the front- grass dotted with hickory and oak, but the dude who owned the place before me let the invasive shit take over... this is about 15 years of invasive growth- all buckthorn and garbage trees.
Got about 7 more acres to tear through.

I will take that over our quarter acre fenced in lot.

I think the neighbors complained and the city people just had their people mow it. The fine was probably the 100 dollars I am guessing they charged.
Many years ago, maybe 2 years after I moved in to my first house, my old busted lawnmower crapped out.
It was a super rainy June, and shit got out of control quickly.
At the time, the position I was in work wise was wide open for making cash- the only limit was sleep.
Like any kid I took full advantage and worked stupid hours and ignored the lawn.

I get home one day and someone had mown for me. Dont know who, they left no note nor had anyone said a word.

That was the most effective slap in the face I have ever had. From that week on, I never once skipped a week.

A fine or someone bitching at me... wouldn't have done shit except elicit a middle finger.
...but that- whoever it was made their point to perfection.
Lesson learned...other people exist around me and they don't need to look at my mess.

Could have just been a nice guy. that wanted to help.

I am sure it was.... but at the time as a healthy 20 something it was pretty embarrassing and shameful to me that someone spent their own off time doing that.
