Preparing something so that it only has the finishing touches left. Derived from first planting seeds, watering the lawn and then, finally, cutting the grass.

When there is only 10% left of being complete, that part is the cutting of the grass.
1. I had gotten through nine out of ten questions on the test, I was ready to cut the grass.

2. So I took out the chords, fixed up my guitar, learnt the song, then I spent an hour cutting the grass to make it perfect!

3. She picked up milk and eggs at the store, I mixed the pancake batter, and then we both cut the grass.
