"yo" (a slightly different example)

"The yard needs mowed yo, G"
I could Never say that nor have I ever heard it.
I'm not even sure "G" would work without the "yo". If I wanted to say "G" it would have to go something like:
"Mow the yard, G."
I think perhaps (bear with me...) "G" is the specific and "yo" is the general. That might be why it sounds so odd to make a general statement with the specific pronoun (??).
As always, nothing but IMHO. (but beaming Sally Field style because you really liked my example)
