Here in Arizona we need to cut lawn year round?

Most HOA require winter over seeding of exposed yards to hide the heat tolerant summer grass that does dormant and brown. End up having a second winter season of cold weather rye grass to mow. Might only cut it twice it month in December/January, but still need to cut the bloody stuff.

Since most lot sizes held under HOA legal bondage are small, cutting these miniature lawns is royal PIA. Takes longer to get mower out of shed and ready to work, than actually cutting the grass. My last two rental places had yards so small, wimpy 2AH electric lawn mower battery can cut grass at least twice before needing charge.
Current place is gravel in front and larger spot of grass in back. Battery is almost dead when let grass get too long before mowing it. Bought an electric mower as manual rotary mowers sell for twice as much.

Used to love solace of cutting the lawn when I younger. As a kid, I cut lawns professionally, even did a summer on golf course. I moved to AZ 20 years, so I could stop cutting grass!
Then as fate would have it;
SWMBO decided kids need a dog, and of course dog needs grass to go bathroom. Plans screwed again! Funny part is dogs like to play on grass, and crap on rocks all way around it?
Grass is over rated PIA!!!!
