Out of the Blue

I braved the sweltering heat to mow the lawn yesterday, so our yard is currently tidy. I've mentioned in the past that we're not real lawn nuts: Since the yard is the dog's we don't do pesticides or fertilizer, and just do the best we can to keep it looking okay anyway. We also have a manual mower, which is more than sufficient to clear our little spot of land, and moving a couple of years ago to a Fiskars model proved to be a terrific upgrade. But I'm realizing we will most likely end up with more land when we move to the country, so I have to figure out what the breakpoint is for manual mowing... I'm guessing it's under an acre, so depending on our landscaping needs I may need to reconsider my manual mower. Or maybe we'll just live in a jungle. I guess I'll worry more about this when the time comes.

Keep the manual mower and mow in half hour Increments. It might take several days but it will be a great daily workout!
I hate lawn work, probably due to having childhood asthma and adulthood allergies.

Workout inside under air conditioning and pay the neighborhood kid to mow, depends on how isolated you mean by "moving to the country".
