Came across this on facebook, for those of you who don't know what fox and geese game is it's like playing tag, the center is a free space not to get tagged. Usually played in the winter with snow back in the day when I was young.

This is a great idea, though I do wish people would have smaller lawns and more gardens/woods.

.. and leaving longer areas of grass is beneficial to insects too.

If yards were landscaped with native plants, there would be no need to mow the lawn; or, water it for that matter.

Ok, who has the time? I agree with Donna G.

Although, it's very attractive, it looks like a lot of work, to me.

I have to admit I like to do patterns in my lawn and often mow around wildflowers. The bees and butterflies enjoy the flowers and my ninja cats find left over high grass patches awesome for hiding out in and pouncing on each other.

Noted. I mow three acres and have many trees and shrubs to mow around so I don't have time to mow patterns into it. I cut my mowing time in half when I bought a zero turn mower. I mow twice a week from spring until fall unless we get a dry spell.

I could mow my own crop circles if I had more than a third of an acre including house, shed, trees, compost pile, veggie gardens and flower beds! Also I just have what I call a pushy lawn mower ( a reel mower ). But the mind boggles!

We have lawns back and front, and my mother always likes to have "perfect cricket pitch" mowed lawns :-)

Our lawn is not really a lawn as it has tons of wild flowers-herbs-tall grasses+cat nip instead...very lil work to maintain+most plants can do without the usual watering.
