about two weeks ago I went home for lunch to wait for a TV delivery. I let the delivery guys out of the house in time to see someone slowly driving past the houses taking pictures. thinking it was the folks appraising my house (I am re-fi'ing) I said "hey, are you the appraisers". the guy looked surprised but chatted a bit - nope, just the HOA looking at everyone's house. I thought hmmmmm, bastids. yesterday I got a letter - "your lawn needs edged. you have til June 18 to comply." protest is futile (I've lived there a year and a half and can assure them I've never edged it and never heard a peep from them) so I guess I better figure out what the heck to do. apart from calling a lawn guy - what do you do? can I get away with just mowing it all short? I think edging is pulling the grass away from the very edges using some kind of hoe-like tool, (edger) right? (seems useless to me frankly) I have no green thumb in case this isn't apparent.
