What would happen to your yard if you left your house (omakotitalo) for 2 months? Your Finnish neighbors will tell you.

I left Finland for a two-month vacation last summer. When I came home, I was surprised to find that the lawn in my yard was well maintained. BTW, all my neighbors were Finns. I didn’t ask them to maintain the lawn, but they did it silently and even didn’t tell me after I got home until I asked them. It’s interesting, three of my neighbors maintain lawns in three different locations in my yard, and there’s not even a discussion among them. Finns seem to be a bit cool. Neighbors usually nod and smile when they meet, they don’t give warm hugs, but you can trust them when you need help.
