Ok. I've recently moved into a house with a nature strip. So I need a rundown of nature strip etiquiette.
I find it infinitely annoying when I see someone has mowed theirs to the line of their property only to leave a square metre to the curb, unmown - coz it's not their responsiblity etc. Just to be clear, this isn't the case with my house, I'm talking about when I see it anywhere. Just mow the rest you miserable fucking miser.
At the same time, there has to be a line. My neighbour's strip extending from mine is 3 times the size of mine. Do I do the extra nice thing and do it if it happens to need doing? If I do that, do I go around the corner and do the rest - less than I've already mown - that is not even on my street?
Where do you draw the line?
I've got a wimpy electric mower and I've only got enough to cut my lawns, out to the nature strip and all of one neighbours (she's about 100, so kind of have to) and a little bit of the other neighbours.
The bloke a couple of doors down has a new petrol mower so he comes past and just does everyone's for a laugh. I had told him I was asking santa for another longer extension cord so I could mow his, but he didn't get the hint.
