As someone who has a pond, a couple streams, a few swampy areas, and a couple spots that will accumulate water under the right conditions, I am glad to see some common sense being restored. I mow/weed whack right to the water’s edge for my pond because it is in my yard proper. I leave everything else as nature chooses it to be. Here in the soggy northeast there is water everywhere and trying to regulate every puddle is overkill to a significant degree.
