For those of you who follow the old adage of “the grass isn’t always greener on the other side”, I present to you some insight for consideration.
Green grass takes tending. It takes care. The best yards that you see in your neighborhood are the ones where the people who live there take pride in ensuring the grass which they lay claim to is the most pristine. You have to take care of your grass. You have to put in the hard work. You have to want your grass to be first-rate.
When you find yourself in the midst of a yard that is brown, dead, and bereft of life most people tend to want to gaze longingly at the surrounding yards with their luscious green grass and manicured landscape and wish to be the owners of such a beautiful sight. What they fail to acknowledge as they peer lustfully across the fence is that it took a lot of hard work and dedication to make such an amazing and desirable scene. They assume that simply moving to an area with such a yard will be enough, and while they may have an alluring lawn for their first season, over time and without maintenance their lot will slip into decay once more.
I propose to you that if you find yourself envious of the greener grass you should stop and introspect upon the matter. Is your grass sub-par because you spent your time gandering when you should have been gardening?
