A British woman gets paid to making sure blades of grass grow to the right height and that they do so in the most efficient way possible

The seed analyst, Helen Southall, has claimed that her job is “rewarding” and “fascinating” and allows her to spend most of her time outdoors and added that she “wouldn’t do anything else”, the New York Daily News reported.

The 43-year-old resident of Timberland in Lincolnshire spends her days planting samples and making sure that blades of grass rise to the right length, and also has to individually count out seeds, which she admitted is a “tedious” task.
