I've been ignoring it for some time, not wanting to admit that I have a problem. But my lawn is winning. Or maybe my reel mower is losing. Ever since my backyard neighbor took down his large cherry tree (and the shade it provided), my backyard has been growing like a weed (well, it is made of weeds, so I guess that's only natural). As I'm not the homeowner and don't want the expense of grass seed or aerating or anything technical like that, I'm doing the best I can with what I have.
First step is trying to figure out how to best sharpen/adjust my reel mower so that has a fighting chance. But, I think I may need to buckle down and buy a power mower. Of course this mower will be cordless and electric (boogie, woogie, woogie). I don't need to worry about oil changes and storing gas, especially since I don't have a shed and this mower will live folded up in the crawlspace under the house. Plus, better for the environment makes me feel better. There are two at the top of my list right now: Neuton 5 and Earthwise. I've read a few articles (and many reviews) and I think both sound like a winner. I'm leaning toward the Neuton for its cool green look. Is that wrong?
