Mowing the lawn sucks arse. Is there a more thankless task?
« on: October 30, 2021, 10:12:56 PM »
Just mowed my lawn. That shit sucks filler's massive hog.

It's not even summer here yet and it already needs mowing weekly...and don't get me started on hedges and fucking trees that need trimming.

I fucking hate ruining my weekend vibe with this shit.

Is there a more thankless home owner task?

Get some snug in-ear buds and put on a podcast.  Makes it a much more pleasant task.

Get a robotic lawn mower or make/adopt a kid to take care of the chores around the house. Whichever is more economical.

I find gardening relaxing. Crack open a cold one after you're done.

I have two kids but neither is old enough to operate the mower.

I actually went with my Sony noise cancelling cans with some death metal, but I get your drift.

There will be one year between 28-31 where you'll understand why dads love lawn shit so much but it will only last for one summer and you'll be back to hating having to mow every week/other week for 8 months a year.

Lawns are dumb.

Stop being dumb.

Either fill it with trees or rocks, whatever is appropriate for your area

that's why I just drive over it until it gets too high to drive over and my car gets stuck and I spend an hour feebly shoveling myself out of the problem I made for myself

Got gifted a lawnmower.  Gonna be a new thing for me.  It's an electric push mower and the grass can be mulched, so shouldn't be too bad.  Plus the back yard is pretty small.

I'm strongly considering an electric mower. Probably going to go with the Ryobi One+ system cause I already have some of their power tools and I hate having multiple chargers and different batteries lying around.

Glad someone else called you out on this, surely the rest of your family is shunning you

I've got an Ozito one and it's great. Hated running out of petrol mid mow.

What's the benefit of electric over petrol? Are they just as powerful?

My Victa looks to have carked it.

It's more convenience (not having to get petrol/gas), quieter, cleaner, better for the environment. Plus you can re-use the batteries if you buy into the same ecosystem. Some of the expensive models are pretty powerful, just depends on the amount of grass you're doing.

Laying out some paving stones to cover where the grass doesn't grow.

Fucking hot as fuck today. 29C, feels like 32C according to Google.



Halfway done. Lost all my shade. Might get back to it later.



Finished this section. Have a few more to place on the other side other gate, then I need to order gravel and fill it in.

A week of solid rain followed by two days of summer sunshine meant grass was verging on jungle.

Mowing damp grass is a shit job made shitter.



Dog was very happy to have short grass again.
