You've seen goats eat tin cans so surely they could take care of an overgrown backyard when the string trimmer was broken. A few minor issues to consider:
1) Getting to the goats from the farm to a suburban backyard

While logging some quiet family time, Kriste (my mom) noticed a silent visitor on top of the kitchen cabinets. In a flash, she returned with the proper mouse hunting gear. In the end, our little buddy opted to jump rather than face sure fire capture.
Brad: Here comes Maria...
Maria: (softly) You've got to get out of the way.
Maria: (with conviction) Seriously... GET OUT OF MY WAY!
