Do you walk through grass or stay on concrete?

  1. Save the grass, walk the few extra feet, stay on the sidewalks.

    Do you guys walk through the grass door to door when handing out flyers, door hangers and the such? Like a postman on foot does?

    Or do you stay on sidewalks and driveways?

    I personally have always stayed on the concrete as I find it disrespectful to walk through the yard of someone you do not know.

    I went with save the grass, but it really depends on the area that im hitting up. if im in a area i can get 60+ a lawn you bet your but im not cutting through the grass, now if im in a area that i will pull 30 a lawn i may or may not cut through, i guess it depends on my mood and bed placement also plays into my choice, I will not walk through flower beds, climb retaining walls ect.

    i say screw the grass, normally i respect property, but in this case you are talking more than a few extra feet when you are dealing with a couple thousand hangers.

    If people would get upset if I walked on their grass to talk to them, HTF am I supposed to do the maintenance on their lawn. Petty little fascists can find someone else to enslave.

    Agree with greendoctor 100%. I'll walk on the sidewalk/walkway on maybe 1 out of 100 yards, if it is a nice lush lawn. Especially if you are handing out thousands of flyers or brochures:walking:
