3 Ways to Make Mowing Fun Again

Posted July 23, 2014 by 3 Comments

Has mowing the lawn become just an inconvenient chore you dread every week or so?

Remember when it used to be fun? Or maybe it was only worth it as a kid when the neighbor would hand over a crisp $5 bill for an hour’s work.

Well here are three ways you can get a kick out of mowing, so it’s always something to look forward to every time you step out on the lawn.

1.) Set Your Own Lawn Speed Record – Time Yourself

It’s a race against time! See how fast you can mow your lawn (safely), then try to beat it every time.
*Rule: Add 10 seconds for every patch of grass you miss.

2.) Lawn Art – Create Your Backyard Masterpiece

If straight rows are becoming way too boring, try mowing a unique pattern in your grass with a lawn striping kit. Smiley faces are extra credit.

*Recommendation: Draw the pattern on a sheet of paper first, before you start to mow.

3.) Epic Modifications – Pimp Your Mower

Whether it’s a custom paint job, wheel spinners, or flame thrower exhaust (not recommended), you could customize your mower and ride in style.

    UPDATING THE PAINT JOB IS GREAT. TIMING, WHO CAN RESIST A CHALLENGE! THE ART IS JUST A LITTLE TOUCHY, BUT WOULD WORK!

    I try to mow in different pattern every time I mow. Thats the way I was told to do, when learning many moons ago. To me speed is not the goal, the looks is what I try achieve. With about 4 A, and an older 42″ mower, I say { enjoy the view }!!
