Until a couple of weeks ago I had never mowed a lawn in my life. When I was buying a house, I wasn’t really sure I wanted that to change, but even though I found a house with a nice small lawn it still took me five weeks to finally go kicking and screaming to Home Depot to get a lawnmower.
I got the best one! I bought a Scotts 16″ Elite Push Reel Mower, one of those that doesn’t require gas or electricity, and it works! My lawn was awful, after all that time, and I honestly didn’t think this mower would work. I wasn’t really sure that it would work at all regardless. It did great job.
I wouldn’t recommend this mower for someone who wants a perfectly manicured suburban lawn, but I’m no suburbanite. With this mower, I mowed by myself for the first time ever. I didn’t have to go to the gas station. I can even lift it by myself. And best of all, Andy and I could have a conversation while mowing.
