Edulien Reeves, appearing for the first time in print, considers the question of lawn care


This is the first blog post from Edulien Reeves, the internet radio host based in Westminster, Colorado, just north of Denver. Edulien recently did a radio show on Westminster lawn care services, and this post is essentially a repeat of that show in written form.

And so now, without further ado…here’s Edulien!

Hello, friends, this is Edulien here, writing my first blog post. I’ve never felt the need to write before, but so many of my faithful listeners have been calling in recently and asking me to start writing a short daily blog to complement my weekly radio show “Address Edulien,” that at last I have given in.

For my first blog post I would like to write about lawn care, which of course all of you know is a subject that is very close to my heart.

A nice green lawn in front of your house, and one behind it too, are what I would call de rigeur for all of us who are blessed to live in the sunny climes of Colorado.

I personally have always mowed and trimmed my lawn myself, sometimes working together with my husband Freddy, but others prefer to hire a lawn care company to do the job for them.

I’m all for lawn care companies, if you can find the right one, a good one, but I myself have never used such a company, and never will—not, at any rate, as long as I am physically capable of pushing a lawnmower.

Why do I insist on doing all the mowing and trimming myself?

The short answer to that is because I love to do it. There’s something about walking back and forth on my property behind a smoothly purring power mower that makes me feel like everything is alright, that basically God is in his heaven and all is well with the world.

Others, I understand, don’t get that feeling; they feel like mowing the lawn is a drudgery that they could do without, and so they hire a lawn care company.

As I said, I’m all for such companies, but as for myself…never!

 And now, when I’m on the verge of starting to repeat myself, I will bring this first blog post to a close. Look for more on this subject when you tune into my blog tomorrow morning!
