Natives need to be left alone to grow to their full height. On the nonnative areas, mowing eight times annually costs $162.72 an acre using state workers, or $800 an acre using contractors. On the native plots, mowing once yearly costs $20.34 an acre with state personnel or $100 an acre with contractors, Ms. Barton said.i'm not sure how the dollars are calculated, but the difference between each is pretty amazing.
if you like grass, plant your own and take care of it, but don't force me to be a mindless eejit doing the same. and stop taking cash from my pocket to mow highways.
