Well, if it's anything like ours it grows out of sight and out of control! Okay, okay, so we haven't mowed in 6 months, but seriously, the driveway at the bottom of the garden is completely overgrown with kooch (kooch is rotten stuff, I tell you!!!).
We've been prioritising the gardening fairly far down on the list for a long time. We just haven't had the funds to pour into it - we have to hire a gardener because we're both completely useless at gardening (read: we hate it).
Anyway, we've realised that waiting this long is false economy because it ends up being such a HUGE undertaking! We got a man in this morning to cut back, he didn't edge or spray because it took all his time and effort just to bush cut it down to a high-mow level. Next time (in a fortnight) he'll go over it lower, and edge and spray huge chunks of the garden. Then he'll cut the grass back from the driveway... A huge undertaking.
Of course, I took some before and after photos - if you click on the photos you can see them at larger dimensions.
