RQOTD - Wednesday

Do you ever mow your own lawn? Or does dh always do it? (or do you hire someone to?)

It's officially DH's chore but I mow ours 50% of the time. Sometimes, when I'm being lazy, I leave the backyard for DH because it's large and slightly sloped and our mower is just a push mower. Plus, the backyard grows like crazy so we have to rake up the extra grass clippings afterwards.

I figure if I can do it while the kids are napping during the week, it frees up that much more time for DH to spend with us on the weekends.

Hahahahhahaha. I've never mowed a lawn, and I don't ever plan on it. I grew up in the mountains where instead of grass we had pine trees and pine needles and now DH does it. He complains sometimes that I never do it, but I just have to remind him that in 10 years I've never once seen him dust (his supposed least favorite chore) and that shuts him up.

I don't touch the lawn. We're in base housing. They take care of anything not in a fence which is our front yard and side yard. DH "mows" the back yard with a weed eater every 2-3 weeks. It's really small and doesn't grow much at all since we never see rain.

We recently bought a mower so DH mows now. Before that the kid next door did it for $20.

Dh does it all the time. We have a ride-on lawn mower and I don't know how to use it.

I do it or my mom does it. We have yard maintenance as our jobs Smile DH takes care of anything needing a tool.

If we had a riding lawn mower, I'd mow everyone's yard in our neighborhood! Those things are fun! Smile

Our landscaper comes every other week to mow the lawn, pull the weeds, etc... DH and I don't have the time for outdoor chores!

DH does lawns part time for a living...so he is in charge of ours too!
