Needs to be Mowed - Really?

This is what my front yard looked like at about 7 o'clock P.M. in late August (2016) after nearly 10-inches of rain over a 3-day period. The water was over 2-feet deep, yet at 9 o'clock the next morning my neighbor's lawn maintenance workers were riding a half-ton mower over the saturated ground (it was similarly flooded) creating another billable action by "cutting" the grass; matted and brown from the sediment. You can imagine the ruts produced by these "professionals."

Rant of the Month

Unfortunately, most people know little about gardening and environmental issues including many "professionals" employed to choose, install and maintain plants and design landscapes. This page highlights specific issues with commentary on remedy or recommendation for course of action. Examples are numerous and easy to find -- rarely requiring me to travel far from home.  Hopefully, these postings will make the task of finding examples more difficult.  I will occasionally also post outstanding and approved examples in an effort to educate.
