We looked at a beautiful piece of land last night. It is 6.5 acres with a stream running through it and it has a barn and is all set up for some animals. It is reasonably priced and I am in love! Anyway, Dh is a little leery and I know one of the issues he has is looking at all that land and wondering how we are going to care for it all. A large part of the land is a sloped field that is dotted with trees. The girls would be playing over there alot I am sure. I know the area has alot of ticks. So, what do we do about the grass in that field in order to prevent our girls from being covered with ticks all the time? Would we just have to cut it? I would say it is a good 4 acres. If we were to cut it, what would be the fastest way? Is there another solution? It looks like it was cut by the previous owner, but certainly not as manicured as the lawn behind the house. We are city folk, wannabe country folk and we are clueless :) So, what would you do??
