Mowing the lawn is seen by most people as a bit of a chore. During the spring and summer months, having to drag the mower out of the shed and find the energy to cut your grass can be a real pain.
But the prospect of leaving the grass to fend for itself is, naturally, not an option for most people. We all love a smooth, short-cut lawn, as it provides us with not only a pleasant garden view but also a safe place for the kids or pets to play, a lovely backdrop for entertaining guests on the patio or a haven for sunbathing when the sun puts in a rare appearance.
If you have a larger than average lawn, of course, the job is an even more daunting one. And if you are still using an ancient push mower you’ve had for decades, it can take you hours to tame your unruly grass into the beautiful, manicured lawn of your dreams.
