    weed and mow

    For example, if you live in a house, you need to mow and weed grasses in the summer time. The work of weeding and mowing is hard work. Are the usages of weed and mow correct here? Are they redundant?

    Re: weed and mow

    You don't "weed grasses." "Weeding" is the process of removing unwanted vegetation (weeds) from the lawn or garden areas.

    "The work of ... is hard work" is redundant.

    You can say "weed the lawn" or "weed the garden."
