other than killing mosquitoes, killing sperm, killing fungus, or killing weeds.
We have clutter like the shed, playground and bricks that my mother does not want to remove. Also, we have weeds growing and tons of branches so I don’t know what to do. Let alone, my mother keeps on saying landscaping is needed but she very rarely asks for a person to cut the grass
and we don’t have the budget to cut our two tall trees.
Alvin Ray you are the best!

Scatterlings: Starbucks addicts, effin' weeds, Monty Python shame
Colony collapse disorder, don't you know. I had no idea about the cost of nutmeg, though. (But do thieves even do much holiday baking?) Later, I remembered reading–many years ago, in The Autobiography of Malcolm X–about prisoners using nutmeg to get …

First, we eliminate all of the diverse, natural, healthy plants that attract butterflies, bees, and other bugs that are important to nature, branding them as “weeds”. We replace them with a monotonous, single species of grass that doesn’t do anything but serve as a hiding place for bugs that we think of as “pests”. We then pay money to buy harmful chemicals to keep out these “pest” bugs. Even more irrationally, we also pay to cut the grass on a routine basis, have the clippings removed, and even water this grass when mother nature won’t maintain it herself. We do all of this for a plain, green lawn that doesn’t provide us any real benefit for all of our time and money. It isn’t even particularly beautiful, especially when we take into account every house down the street has the same lawn. So, why do we do it?
1. The arguments about children playing on lawns is somewhat irrelevant, since there are plenty of people who think so highly of their lawn that they don’t want anyone to walk on it.
2. The alternative to a lawn is not just “dirt”, unless you live in a place inhospitable to most plants, in which case you’re wasting a hell of a lot of water.
