Get Your Goat: An Interesting Way to Mow Tricky Slopes
Vegetation managed by goats. Have you ever heard of such a thing? I hadn't until I moved to east Seattle, Washington. Goat herds are brought in to eat the grass and weeds on steep and difficult to reach public spaces. Isn't that clever?
Right now they are on the hill above our apartment complex and we walked over to say hello. What struck me was how natural and peaceful this project is. I do not like the constant hum of lawn mowers. I've included a short video...you can't hear them talking to one another in this clip, but I could. Very cute. Here is a link to Healing Hooves that describes the grass management program.
