    I know I'm crazy but have any of you guys noticed the different odors from different types of grasses. If I was cutting a lawn with crabgrass in it blindfolded I think I would be able to tell. Once again yes I know that I am crazy but we all have stange thoughts after sitting on the mower all day your brain turns to jello.

    I love the smell of freshly cut grass in the summer. I've never really noticed differences, though. Probably just not looking for it.

    Do you have to be bare-footed also?

    The man with the magic feet. Impressive. If someone in your house farts and you don't see who did it, can you tell who it was just from the smell?

    A lot of times I can't smell grass when I am cutting it. I have bad allergies and my nose gets stopped up pretty easy, besides most of the time I smell the exahaust from the walkbehinds when I am operating them. I do smell grass quite easily when I ride by someone else going down the road that is cutting it though.

    Yea, I can certainly tell the difference in grass smells. Cincy, Jamacan, hawaian all smell much better than homegrown :cool:

    if you walk on a lawn and you squish into tunnels left from the moles, then yes you probably have grubs. They need food, you know. LOL. and Im sure I could tell that blindfolded. I just hope I don't step in poop.
