Dumbass Shit on Nextdoor

The only thing more self-absorbed than you is St. Augustine grass.  Bear in mind, I'm talking about Central Texas climates.  The grass has different needs in different parts of the country.  Now, to keep it truly green, Zoysia and Bermuda need about the same amount of water as Saint Augustine.  But to just say alive and not be overrun with weeds, Saint Augustine requires more water than those other two.  Obviously different sprinkler systems and different levels of maintenance discipline will make results vary, but overall Saint Augustine needs more water than those other two breeds of grass.  Just biological fact, but Player--you do you.  Sling names and pretend you know anything about the outdoors.  

I actually wouldn't mind St. Augustine as much if my neighbor's didn't constantly go under my fence and creep into mine.  And the other side, I got a guy pushing 50 who thinks it's still cool to grow bamboo between him and his own back neighbor, and still doesn't understand how they foster mosquitoes.  My self-righteousness aside, water and mosquitoes are issues in Central Texas.  Those are just facts which are no longer allowed in the Covid-19 era.  So I'll hang up and listen...

You need a drink when you're at the therapist.

Drinking while doing my own lawnwork, now that's cathartic.  Y'all really need to stop taking the shit we say on here so seriously.  Except the mosquito and oak wilt shit, that's where I draw the fucking line.  

That flyover just now was fucking awesome, totes for real.

I'm kind of curious the specific beef here. St Augustine is one of the more drought resistant grasses, and doesn't take more than average water. I guess he thinks everyone should be going with rock front yards or something?

Central Texas has been taken over by Californians, and idiots from Chicago.  There has been an influx over the last few decades, causing an issue with the water supply.  Personally, I hate the Bermuda that grows naturally in the greenbelt behind my house, that constantly tries to wreak havoc on my St Augustine.  But since my part of Texas is basically at sea level, our water issues are typically from having too much.  And really, watering for 5 mins 2x a week will keep up a SA yard very well.  Maybe 3x during the middle of summer. Having well maintained sprinkler systems would save enough wasted water for everyone to have SA, like God intended.

If God intended St Augustine to exist in Austin He would have made it native to this area...

Unless you have a yard of Buffalo Grass, your turf grass shaming rings a bit hollow.

ETA, not directed at anyone specfically, more of a basic observation.

Really, we can't talk grass smack during a quarantine?  What else am I supposed to stare out the window and shout at?  

To be fair, a properly maintained sprinkler system and a properly maintained lawn won't present an issue for any neighbor even with Saint Augustine grasses.    However, I've noticed many Texans seem to...how you say "outsource" their sprinkler and lawn maintenance to lowly-paid laborers who don't give a shit, and I don't blame them.  We live at the edge of a desert, plant and maintain accordingly.  some of you must be serious disappointments to your fathers.

As opposed to interior irrigation?  Cut off and dry me out some cush...daddy needs his medicine.

Fuck. This reminds me to fix the sprinkler head that needs replacing so I can start watering my weeds.

I need to check my valves, but all of them but one are lost in the yard.

"Kinda hard to miss... they've been doing it for at least a week now.  I've seen groups of 10 or more people at a time, so far all guys and most without shirts on, playing basketball in the court near the parking lot."

I neglect the hell out of my St. Augustine and it still looks okay. Not the best in the neighborhood, but not bad.

I mean, that's it's best feature. It's not great to walk on, but you can drive cars over it to no ill effect it's so tough.

Yeah I have no issues with it. I live in the Houston area though so we get enough rain to offset my constantly breaking sprinklers.

There is a post about dead rabbits in my neighborhood after all. That photo is about 50 yards from my house. The likelihood is that said rabbit was gut shot and staggered out in the street to die, not that he was killed by a speeding truck. I guess I’ve been discreet enough to avoid the wrath of the Karens (and Mallikas) so far.

Is there a dead rabbit in these pics?  I'm too distracted by all that bullshit St. Augustine.

No joke.  I signed up today because I wanted to check on the routine for bulk trash removal.  Good Lord.   

People bitching about wearing masks.

People bitching about not wearing masks.

People bitching because a bagger at Tom Thumb wasn't working hard enough.

And, more topical... People bitching because their bulk trash wasn't being picked up in a timely manner.  

And some lady trying to sell two red, hard-covered books for $200 for "decoration".  I.E. the books weren't collector's items, antiques, signed by the original author, or anything else special. Just two books that, I guess, you could pay $200 for to put on a shelf to make it look better.

Hannah needs to check her sources.  This wasn't a rat snake in Mueller.  This was a blue indigo pulled that climbed out of the toilet near Beeville about three years ago.  This was my buddy's family ranch house.  He faced a rash of shit when that female deputy had to come save him.  It crawled into the vanity and she was able to get it out from there.
