Do you own a lawn mower or a riding mower or a push mower?

Do you use it or does the "Man" of your house?

We have a push mower. I have been banned from ever touching it again since I tried mowing the yard when I was 6 months pregnant. Now THAT was a sight!

We have a push mower. I do most of the lawn but we try and split it. Mike does the front and I do the back, which is bigger It's self propelled though so it's pretty easy.

DH has a Honda ride-on lawn mower. (And I say DH has one because I have never mowed a lawn in my life, and I never will.)

Right now we don't have any at all. The riding mower broke down so we borrowed Shane's dad's push mower last fall.
I honestly don't even know how to operate a lawn mower.

Both, when we were in CT we lived on an acre, no way a push mower was gonna work. Now we use the push and the freakin $2000 ride on gathers dust.

Oh and I don't do yardwork. I'm in charge of inside cleaning and that's where I stop.

"The Man" definitely does it here. IE the lawn mowing service.

DH just bought a new one this weekend, it is a self propelled push mower. I do not touch it. I am sure I am not allowed!

We have both. A ride on the needs to be jump started and a push mower that Kev just bought me 2 years ago. Yep - bought me. I have done about 90% of the lawn mowing. I LOVE lawn mowing as long as its on my terms and not a case of DH comes home and says " I'll watch the kids you go mow th lawn" Cause its normally 90 degrees out those days.

Den mowes it. When he was in Iraq, my dad came and did it for me. Mainly because when i go around the house, I can't see the kids play in the sandbox/swing set. Plus one of them was always right on top of me and my aunt had an accident with the push mower(cut her big toe off) so I never allow anyone around the mower)
