I had a woman come up to me while we were mowing an HOA and told me, "You're mowing too much, you're going to kill the grass. Everybody knows that you don't mow as much when it's a drought."

So I say, "Well, we have irrigation here, so if I don't mow every week during the summer, the grass will be 8 inches tall and it'll get damaged if I remove too much of the grass blade in one mowing every two weeks"

Looks dumbfounded...

Then she tells me that we're cleaning too many leaves out of the gulley.
"It's too clean, it doesn't look natural"

I guess everyone's an expert!
