    What I like best about mowing the lawn wasn’t one of the options: I like looking back and seeing how the lawn looks after I have finished mowing. Second-best, I suppose the satisfaction I receive from viewing mowing results probably does relieve some stress.

    I always say that, unlike my job, when I mow I can see where I’ve been.

    When I was a kid I mowed 7 lawns to pick up a little spending money. I enjoyed mowing and got a lot of satisfaction from looking at a freshly mowed and trimmed lawn. Today, at age 72, I cut my own grass and still enjoy doing it.

    The best part of mowing is-
    When I’m finished I can sit back
    and relax with a cold beverage.

    What I really like best is sitting down with a cold drink after I finish it all up (mowing, edging, trimming) and just looking over the lawn and enjoying the view and having my neighbors walk past and telling me how great my lawn looks.

    I enjoy the patterns left in the lawn and the prim and proper look of a neatly mowed, trimmed and cleaned up yard on a Friday night as the sun sets, things cool down and the weekend begins. Where’s that cold beer?

    As long as there is no blood letting its all good! In a week it won’t matter if I went side to side, front to back or cross wise. No one is gong to ask me about that time I mowed the lawn in 2013, what choices I made and what do we do about it now!

    I enjoy mowing and trimming my lawn. It’s good exercise and the end result is a professional looking lawn. A few of my neighbors have lawn services. Their end result is a cut lawn but unlike mine, they don’t bother with doing clean edging work along the sidewalk, trimming the hedges, and good clean straight lawn cuts. After mowing my side of the lawn I can still see where the lawn service “missed”. I’m not in for the money just to make my home look like someone really cares about the landscape. Being retired now, I need the exercise and a feeling of accomplishment.

    A good well maintained lawn tractor, sharp blades, dry grass and a cool evening are the things that help me enjoy the task of cutting 1/2 acre weekly. When the job is finished ( usually takes about 1 1/2 hours) I am able to feel good about how nice the place looks. Excellent “stress reliever.”

    Before I retired I would kid my Wife about mowing. I would tell her that all I wanted to do once I retired was to buy a large property, build our home there a tractor with mower, and mow grass. I am now retired. I my home is on 5 acres of lawn, and pasture. My favorite pastime is to operate my John Deere, listen to music, sing, watch the bluebirds and swallows follow me catching insects, and love driving my tractor. I also like how the property looks after I am done! In Oregon we mow year round, rain or Sun. The only time I don’t mow is when it snows.

    I am 80+ and enjoy mowing with a push mower, using the edger around all the curbing and finally sweeping all the clippings from the drive and curbing first with the weed eater and then the broom and shovel to pick up all the clippings. Nothing I hate worst is those who blow all the clippings in the street and leave them there.

    I enjoy mowing. I have 26 residential customers and 14 business customers. I use a walk behind on 26 and a 54 inch rider on the rest.
    I have mowed for hire for over 30 years. Each spring I send an estimate and and explain the charges. Fuel is the biggest problem. The price this season has increased 84 cents.
    I use 12 to 15 gallon a day.

    OF HAVING A BEAUTIFUL LAWN. THE NEIGHBORS WANT TO KNOW WHAT”S MY SECRET FOR IT TO LOOK SO GOOD. THAT MAKES ME PROUD OF THE HARD WORK THAT I PUT IN TO KEEP IT THE BEST YARD IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD.

    I am 75yrs old and retired. I live with my son,so to show that I try to pull my own weight in this family, I maintain a 1 acre front yard and a 1 acre back yard
    plus the hedges and trees that borders the property. So, mowing the lawn is really the only time I am sitting down. I love my Family and I love my Mower.
    Thanks Jacks small engins for keeping my mower going.

    The breaks! Who could honestly say they love the misquito repellant they have to use or ducking for tree branches or mowing around the puddles or changing blades and sharpening blades? The breaks are wonderful; sitting back with a glass of fresh made Ice Tea and watching the song birds in the yard.

    Being an engineer, I love to hear the motor purring as it should, the sizzle of the razor sharp blades slicing the grass, and most of all – using a modern mower that I have personally modified to actually cut grass at a reasonable speed. The US Gov. has restricted the blade tip speed on home used mowers such that they will not cut at an acceptable speed or quality of cut. I can be done – mine does.

    I like mowing the lawn with my selection of Vintage and restored Victa 2 strokes. I have a full set of VC160’s,a Victa 18 model 5,circa 1959, a 1976 Victa Supreme twin cylinder mower ( and two spare engines) along with several mid 60’s Cortina models, a 1972 Lancer 160, and a mid 80’s Power Torque model. These are all very well made Aussie mowers from an era that has sadly passed.

    I think a lot of people are to ignorant to keep and maintain a lawn mower thus pay some one to mow and some are just to lazy.

    Me, I mow my yard because I like to be doing something all the time.

    A no-brainer, just steer & cut the mower does all the hard work.
