It will hinder grass growth through telepathy. We do all the maintenance here through rock telepathy. It is hard work, but we’re suited for that, as you can see.
I don’t understand. How can a rock mow grass?
It doesn’t. The rock tells the grass to stop growing. So if you wait until the grass is tall, it’ll be next season before you’ll see results. This year you’ll have tall grass. Next year, tall dead grass. Unless you take up a sickle yourself. New grass stays short.
Hi! Thanks for dropping by my site. I hope you'll browse around a bit and find something you like. My genre is hard to define, but it's closest to urban fantasy. Except set in the rural world, for the most part. It's a blend of soft science fiction, fantasy, and in my current work, near-future post-collapse.
