In the original PC release of RollerCoaster Tycoon, if playing in a scenario with a lot of grassland, I would ensure my handymen did not mow the grass as their other services seemed more beneficial to keeping the park tidy, as well as making sure the handymen did not wander off the paths. In the android release, the handymen by default do not mow the grass (that duty by default is set to off).
I know the guests will remark on the scenery and vandalism, but I have not seen anything to suggest that mowing the grass has an effect on the guests or ride construction.
My question is; does mowing the grass have any effects apart from just making the park look tidier? Does allowing it to overgrow have any negative effects?
