Helen dragging it off topic again 

Goats do wonderful things for your lawn. Mine was lush and green in the backyard where the goats were and dry, sparse and brown in the front yard. The guy that did my lawns used to complain bitterly because he had to empty the grass catcher so often.  I couldn't see what his problem was since it meant that he had to mow more often and get paid more often. Now he complains because I don't have the goats and my lawns require much less attention.
