Classy 97 Family Feud: Stay Off My Lawn


From June 12, 2019

Dear Nelson & Liza,

Our neighbors have an automatic sprinkler system that misses one 10 x4 section of their lawn. Last summer it just went brown and died. The little patch seems to have made a comeback this year but we can see that it needs to be watered. Should I just set my sprinkler to cover it or should I let it die again?
My wife says just because I care about having a perfect lawn doesn’t mean everyone else has to. I’m not asking them to do anything. I’ll take care of it myself. What would you do?

Gary,
