Yes, it's a log house. I have deer and I thought that would help, but all it did was make my goldrush grow crooked. I believe olepea or jellyman told me it wouldn't help, so I took it off. And yes, I seem to mow grass all the time, close to 2 acres of mowing area. There's a bunch more trees now, glad I retired cause it takes a lot of time babying those children. But I love my hobby, just wish I knew what all of y'all do about growing them correctly. Hey, thankyou for asking.
