good one. Like someone said before, it is kind of misleading, which makes it somewhat hard. I still wonder why a simple lawn mower didnt come to mind...

Great teaser. I found it easy and didn't read the hint until I read the explanation then I went back and read your hint, It was really good too. Thanks.

I rarely get riddles, and this one I got immediately, no hint! Easy-peasy, lemon-squeezy, as my younger students like to say!!

"always wins"? Ever run a lawn mower over a thick area of long grass where the glass blades tangle up in the mower blades and stop the mower? Chuckle.....if one wants to be picky about things....but I thought it was wonderful riddle!

Thanks for the positive comments folks. This was more of a teaser "snack." I'm glad it was enjoyed as one.

Great riddle, thanks.
I thought it was GRASS at first ... living in the tropics, you realise how the grass and other plant life eventually take over from their foe - the constructions of man! many old buildings lie low now, covered by the plants they once suffocated.

That's a great one. For some silly reason I assumed you were talking about the measurement "yard" rather than a backyard. Threw me off a bit!

Easy but a good teaser - thanks! Happy Labor Day - and relax! Hi to KiPA and Sis!

Good teaser, even if it was a bit easy. Didn't read the hint until after though, not that it would have helped as I have a manual mower.

AROB, and if it wasn't raining I would be firing mine up. Happy holiday to GiMi & AS.
