Rev Long, I agree with most of your posts and while I agree most graves aren't visited many are. From my view point not keeping grave yards mowed is disrespectful and hazardous for older visitors. From a practical point of view it will make the adjacent church look vacant and invite vandalism.
Rev David, they tried that at St David's but it ended up with the grass being higher than the gravestones. People who tended their own graves were finding them overrun from the graves of people who didn't.
The complaints came in thick and fast and the idea was, eventually abandoned.
