What's your idea of a perfect lawn?

A man in Longwood, Florida, who has a somewhat radical approach to lawn maintenance, is now facing a hefty fine, to the tune of $130,000. 32-year-old Sean Law is an eccentric nature lover.

The problem is that he never mows or takes any necessary measures to keep his yard in picture perfect condition. Law lives in a suburban neighborhood on East Maine Avenue.

He describes his mentality concerning the property stating “My motive is to grow life and love. It's a moral imperative that we grow food wherever we can, and that is what I am doing.”

It’s his neighbors and town authorities, who don’t agree with him. Nearby dwellers are complaining about not only the looks of the weed and tree stump ridden lawn, but also how the appearance is having a negative impact on their own property values.

His debts which amount to the 130 grand mark are attributed to numerous code-enforcement fines. Law isn’t planning on paying. Instead he recently filed an appeal to the lower court's decision in upholding the citations.

Law said he is simply growing his own food and creating a natural environment for healthy fruits and veggies to grow.

What's your opinion?
