For years I mowed around a little decorative flag in the midddle of the yard, at one point I must have thought it was cute, but over the years (8) it was rather annoying. I had to mow around it and get the trimmers out and trim it, all taking time I could use for something fun. So after 8 years, I went out last summer and just pulled it up. Nobody noticed, the sky didn't fall and mowing was much easier. So if something is bothering you and you can change it, do it. If it doesn't work you can always go back to the old way. Take a chance, make a change you will be surprised at how something so simple can change your attitude.
