    the neighbour's 14yo does the mowing and whipper snippering. i have done it about 3 times, then my mower broke. it was an old fix-up anyway. i have never used a whipper snipper, i wouldn't have the first idea how. i didn't have a clue how to use a mower until i broke up with the ex in october and was forced to learn. i still can't steer the damn things, i have to lift a set of wheels off the ground and physically turn my body around.

    but that's cool cos i don't have to do it for a while yayyyyyy i find it hard enough to keep on top of the house work, especially now that i'm studying again.

    We have a quarter acre of Lovely green hardy buffalo lawn that is my dh's pride and joy. Many people don't have lawn up here as they can't be bothered looking after it with the heat and humidity so we are quite proud of ours My dh works away and the hour he is home out comes the mower, but not any old mower, it's a roller mower, the cut is more even and leaves the lawn like a bowling green If we are away he won't let a gardener come in to mow it because he doesn't want all the prickles coming into our lovely grass from the crappy lawns that the people that do have lawns have besides the fact no one will mow it properly like he does.

    When we lived in the city years ago we also had beautiful lawn on a large property which I did have to mow for a while when dh had a work accident but I didn't mind it, prefer not to do it though.

    I got sick of mowing the lawn (more truthfully, the mowers breaking down - I had three and it was always a case of, which one is going to work today), so acquired some guinea pigs to keep it in check. (They ate it bare and I had to lock them in their cage to give it a chance to grow back. It is growing back nicely so I'll let them out again soon.)

    DH does. I've never mowed a lawn myself.
