What length is your grass?

Don't know?
Maybe ask Basildon council to help out - they like spending money on measuring grass to the tune of £150k!

Town hall bosses in Basildon forked out for a private company to measure the height of the public lawns so they know how much grass their new lawn-mowing company has to cut.
The Tory-led council claims it wants a proper job done because the last firm that measured it in 2008 didn’t do it right.
Atlantic Geomatrics Ltd have quoted nine months to finish the job

So by the end of the nine months, the grass height will have completely changed and the council won't know the real height anyway  Roll eyes
