And why are homeowners allowed to do their own lawn?

  3. reminds me of the the old Italians that insisted on using pure ammonia sulphate on their lawns, 2 things would happen, there lawn would dry out since in a 7 day period during springs natural spurt growth the lawn grew 3 ft tall and our highest setting for mowers is 3 inches, grass would yellow and dry because of sun and then of course, they would spread by hand so you would get burn spots such as the pics

    Why?? Because we live in America and last I checked (at least for now) we have the freedom to kill our own grass if we choose too. Goes right along with a bad paint paint job, crooked fence, plastic pink flamingos, and a smart car in the driveway. All ugly but all "nunya" business.

    This is true ,in that case ,why should I have to pay 1200.00 for a business license each year to spray lawns. Either they get one too or I shouldn't have to pay to burn a lawn also!

    Have you ever changed a faucet in your house, un clogged a drain, painted your house, fixed a fence? Do you have a plumbing lis. Are you a painting contractor, a general contractor,? Ever given someone in your family any medicine? Do you have a medical lis? Maybe you get my point now? To do anything to your own property is completely different than doing things for hire, the government isn't there to protect us from our selves but to protect people from other people. Ever tell someone to fight a speeding ticket? Have you paid the money to become a lawyer?
