    Well I always *want* to because our lawns end up way overgrown but DP insists it's his 'job'. I guess I do have enough of my own jobs to do!!

    Problem is he always ends up paying someone to come and do it. I'd rather keep the $50 and do it myself...

    DH if he is here or FIL if he isn't. I am a bit scared of lawnmowers plus i'm not sure who would be watching my kids while i was off lawn mowing - it's not exactly a quick job at my house.
    The only time i have mowed (mown? - what's the right word here?) the lawn is when i was 9 months pregnant with DD2 and was hoping to induce labour I used a push mower (as i said a bit scared of the motorised ones ) and it was fun and a great work out but i didn't go into labour

    My mower was stolen (along with the wheelbarrow and $3 rake) so if I can't borrow my brother's then I pay someone because it works out the same as hiring one and I don't have to try to fit a lawn mower in my sedan. The guy who does mine charges $45 with rubbish removal (grass clipping, palm fronds) whereas it costs $40 to hire one, and I have to have a spare $100 that can be refunded at the end.

    DH does it, I'm terrible and see it as a boy's job. Last year when DH had a knee reconstruction he convinced me to do it so I got everything out and then he said "oh there's no petrol, you'll have to go down to the petrol station and fill up the jerry can". Um, NO. Everything went back in the shed and I paid an old guy $100 to do it instead (it's a big lawn).

    its all DH - we live on 8acres and the outside is taken care of by him. I will help sometimes, but last time i rode the rideon mower over a tree stump that i didnt know was there and it cost us $400 to get the mower fixed.

    DH does ours. I tried once,but wasn't able to start the mower! I have pushed it around once or twice once it's been started though.
