Wow, I was just coming in to see if anyone knew the origin of this phrase. It was used constantly on Australian Big Brother. They used it to mean: keep away from someone if someone else is (sexually or romantically) interested in them (example: "I think he's hot but so does she and she's my friend and I don't want to cut her grass.") My question was on the origin rather than the meaning of the phrase. I thought it may have some relationship to "moving in on someone's turf", but I can't find any references to it.
