New lawn mowers

I heard that George Aday has decided to go into the rent a goat business.
Seem that it has become the right thing to do is to hire a bunch of goats to take care of your lawn mower chores.
George is on social security and need some extra income so he thought why not?
Recently, the patch of weeds behind Steve Holdaway's Chapel Hill, N.C., home
grew so unkempt that he hired outside help. For six hours, the crew's members
tackled tall grass and thorny blackberry plants and toiled without a break—other
than to chew their cud, that is.
His workers: seven hungry—and carbon-emission-free—goats.
Goat-Powered Lawn Care

As more homeowners, businesses and towns seek to maintain land with fewer
chemicals or fossil-fuel-powered machinery, a growing number are trying goats to
get rid of unwanted vegetation. Internet rivals Google Inc. and Yahoo Inc. hired
herds to clear around their Northern California headquarters this year. So did
the Vanderbilt Mansion, a national historic site in Hyde Park, N.Y. And this
April, nannies and billies were deployed at the U.S. Naval Base Kitsap Bangor in
Silverdale, Wash., to annihilate pesky scotch broom plants

Disease is caused when the normal growth of the lawn New Lawn is disrupted because of its interactions with pathogens like fungus. The pathogen comes from the environment and hinders the growth of turf grass. Diseases generally occur where the environment is floods with pathogens. Moreover the plants which are more stressed are prone to disease as compared to unstressed plants.
