    When I was young I did my parents place. Dh does it now and won't let me anywhere near his ride on.

    So yeah, not me! DH does them...if he didn't then I would pay someone
    LOL me too...

    Problem here is that DH generally waits until we have an overgrown jungle, and we cant see the dog anymore before he bothers to do it, but refuses to pay someone to do it
    The thing that is really ridiculous though, is that we have a tiny yard. If he did it more regularly it would probably only take about 10 mins to do the whole lot, but instead he lets it grow so long he only takes 2 steps before needing to empty the catcher

    I have never mown a lawn or been anywhere near a lawn mower either. I wouldn't know what to do

    DH always mows our lawn and does garden stuff (I'm scared of spiders, bugs, everything outside). He also helps inside the house

    Mine only takes about half an hour. The front can be done with a ride on, as can most of the back, except around the swingset. Everything else can be moved. The raking takes a bit longer.

    Everything outside is for DH to take care of. It takes him about half a day to mow, whippersnip and edge the lawn. And that's just the front. Our backyard isn't done yet so I'm sure it'll take a whole day once it is.

    The lawnmower lady, she's doing it right now. Always when the kids finally go down for their nap.

    I used to have to push mow paths in a 10 acre garden, I'll never mow a lawn again if I can help it.
