Thank you for all your answers, I've really gotten some nice tips!

It's all about a balance. Describe the area, but don't lock the properties exclusively. Tell me the grass is green and long. Tell me that the long, dark green grass is consistently blown by the wind as the dew moves from blade to blade. Don't tell me that the dark green grass blowing in the wind was grown by an old farmer who eventually moved away, hence why it is so long. Don't tell me that this time of the year is normally relatively windy. All of that is usually unnecessary and I can't stand that. Once you take away and describe every single part that I would normally leave to my imagination, I kinda feel like the story is more of one that you wanted to tell rather than one you wanted me to read.
This is very wise. I struggle to maintain this balance when writing anything fictional.
