Whacking Grasses

I remember seeing someone last year use their string trimmer to cut back their bushes and thought I would give it a try this spring on cutting back the grasses that hide our gas regulator.  I usually use the hedge trimmer to cut the top half of the grasses then get down on my hands and knees with a pair of pruning shears to cut the bottom half a few inches above the ground.  I am happy to report that the string trimmer method, while not a walk in the park, is a fraction of the work.  After I raked up the mess I made, I finished the job, as usual, with the lawnmower, leaving an inch or less of last year's grasses in the way of this year's crop, which is 4-5 weeks will once again be taller than the meter.
