Mowing the Grasses

The grasses and hostas in the backyard get cut back in March to make way for their new growth. Contrary to the advice of professionals, who recommend leaving a third of the grass, I take it to the ground, cutting it down to a few inches with a hedge trimmer, then running the lawn mower over the remainder. A few weeks later they're going through their growth spurt and doing their primary job of hiding the gas meter, better known in the past as "third base".
