    Did that once - the meter was about a metre inside the fence and hidden by foot-high nutgrass. Now I check the feral properties to find the meter before we do any mowing...some things are learned the hard way

    Yeah mate been there done that, it is now one of the first things I ask people with vacant blocks and/or long grass. If the council come to fix it they aren't shy on charging you for it.

    At least palm seeds don't get mashed up in the soles of your boots!

    Gum nuts go pretty hard too. So do golf balls.

    Oh and crap, pulled some rusty old wire with nails out of the overgrown kikuyu with the brushy the other week. Wanted to throw my brushy with the wire wrapped around the head through their window. (but didn't )

    People with that cheap ass brush fencing that you cant wipper along without ending up with wire wraped up in your brushy head.
    Then they say you havn't finished the edges. Or they don't want you to spray along the edge. Or they are so paranoid about any poison spraying in the same yard that their friggin lap dog craps in that you may as well talk to a brick wall, yet they will not pay for hand weeding. Phuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuken people and their lap dogs
