Lawn addiction is not a new phenomenon.
Although traditionally it has been heavily regarded as the man’s job around the house, it has culturally progressed into an object of pride and presentation for the whole family (especially when it is in tip-top condition).
It goes without saying that this sense of hard work and status triggers many blokes’ competitive nature, but it also brings a lot of benefits such as connecting with the outdoors and community, understanding your environment, and taking pride in your surroundings.
Where before you only had your fellow neighbour’s lawn to compete with, nowadays social media has enhanced this even further as it has given us a platform to have a wider audience, get more feedback and to access support or information from other lawn fanatics online.
It goes without saying that lawns continue to be markers of success, but WA’s harsh summer temperatures and continuous sunshine brings us the perfect amount of challenge to keep us engaged and motivated.
