Do You Mow Your Own Lawn?

Nowadays, many of us hire someone to do the chores we used to do for ourselves.

I can't stand to pay someone else to do something I am physically capable of doing. I'm only 39, so I have plenty of lawn-mowing years left. I feel a sense of pride in knowing that the lawn is something I created myself.

Yes, all of the 15 acres that is not wooded, creek bottom or stocked pond. And, I hope to bail and sell the clippings. But sometimes the neighbor sends his "crew" over to do a little mowing for me! Ha!


Oh, I mow my corner lot on town too.

Tried a contractor once and they did a crappy job whenever they decided to show up. They tore up the lawn with their zero turn mower when it was wet. No thanks, I'll do it myself just like the maintenance on my Wing. That way you know it's done right. Plus my fat arce needs the exercise, too many rte trips on the motorcycles.

Yes, I mow my own lawn. Just put down feed and weed fertilizer a few weeks ago and have to mow it about every 3 days now.
Its a lot of yard to run up and down with the push mower but it keeps me in pretty good shape.

I enjoy mowing my grass and it's therapeutic for me. I mow about 4 to 5 acres, but I have a 72" cut, 34 HP zero-turn mower that makes quick work of it. When I finish, it's all striped up like a baseball field. As much as I cut, I'm sure it would cost a couple of hundred dollars a week to hire someone to do it.
