The trifecta of small lawn mowing.

I give you the origional push mower:



You get the trifecta in lawn care:

Good for the Earth (No gas, oil, etc)
Good for you. (Great exercise)
Good for your wallet. (It cost me about $90 at Lowes, and never have to pay for gas)

That would take me several days just to cut my lawn. I cut 6 acres of lawn, so I use this...



Mowing at 15mph FTW!!!

How do you trim your grass? I'd just use hedge sheers for something that small, or maybe and electric weed wacker.

We don't. There's a bunch of huge flowery bushes that grow up all over in the spring/summer and the path to the trash cans gets so trampled the grass doesnt grow very high.

The bushes disappear completely in the winter. Oh and don't ask me what the hell they are, I have no idea. My mom raves about em constantly when she comes by though I tend to tune her out when she starts talking about flowers.

I have never measured my backyard (or front) but it is good for a city lot. I have a push-mower.

However this reminds me it is still out of gas for it and my backyard is in desperate need of cutting.
