The Grass is Always Greener… On the Other Side of the Fence Where They’re on Vacation



As the old saying goes, "The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence." In our line of work at Wicked Good Lawn Care, we’ve come to realize that this adage holds a special kind of irony. While our clients are off enjoying their vacations, basking in the sun and sipping on cool drinks, we’re here ensuring their lawns are the greenest and most pristine on the block. It’s a reality we embrace, and though it comes with its own set of challenges, it also brings a fair share of humorous and memorable moments.


The Grass is Always Greener Where the Vacationers Are

We often joke that “the grass is always greener where the vacationers are.” Literally. As lawn care professionals, we see to it that their lawns are lush, well-manicured, and picture-perfect while they’re away. It’s a curious comparison – our clients are off enjoying their time in picturesque locales, while we’re here making sure their own backyards look just as enviable.


One particularly hot summer day, I was mowing the lawn of a client who had just left for a week-long beach vacation. As I maneuvered the mower back and forth, creating those perfect, lawn stripes , I couldn’t help but imagine myself lounging on a beach chair instead. At that moment, as I sweat and toiled in my "living the dream reality" I pictured my clients on a vibrant tropical beach paradise. It was a vivid thoughtful reminder of the very different worlds we were inhabiting at that moment.


When You’re Out Enjoying the Sun, We’re Out Blocking It With Our Hats

Florida summers in the lawn care business are not for the faint of heart. While many are out enjoying the sun, we’re out blocking it with our hats, armed with sunscreen and gallons of water. The work is relentless, but it’s also rewarding in its own way.


I remember one sweltering July afternoon when I was trimming hedges at another client’s house. They had just sent me a picture of their family vacation in the Bahamas, thanking us for keeping their lawn in top shape. Just an FYI, I also send pictures to my clients of there homes when on they vacation so they continue to see the value we provide. As I stood there, drenched in sweat and wrestling with a particularly stubborn holly, I couldn’t help but laugh at the contrast. It’s moments like these that highlight the dedication and resilience required in our profession. They new they could count on me to maintain what they own and that brought me a inner joy and I seek that feeling a lot, especially when the days are tough.


A Funny Story: Spotting a Client Enjoying Their Vacation

One of the funniest and most memorable moments in my career happened a few summers ago. I was at a client’s house, mowing their front lawn, when I noticed a familiar car pulling into the driveway. It was the client, back from their vacation earlier than expected. They rolled down the window and waved enthusiastically, still in their vacation shirts and sunglasses, looking every bit the part of relaxed vacationers.


They stepped out, and after a few minutes of friendly chat, they invited me in for a beer. As I sipped the cool drink, they blessed me with tales of their trip, all while I stood there in my work boots and grass-stained clothes. It was a humorous reminder of the different paths our summer days had taken, yet it also underscored the appreciation they had for the work we do. I also knew that every minute of these stories, had increased my work day but, i like the guy and his kids are funny so, I was just stood there loving the interaction and wondering if the pace they went would be fun in the winter when I can take a vacation.
