I just mowed my lawn with a weed whacker.
Well, I tried to any way. We’ll see whether the wife thinks I managed to do it or not. I may update you with what she thinks, but I may not. It depends how favorably it reflects upon me.
I only have a total area of grass of about 20 feet by 2 feet. I’m heavily guestimating here, as I’m too lazy to go out and measure. We just moved into a new house recently and one of the big features for me was the tiny lawn. The houses are still six feet apart, but tiny amounts of lawn. Coming from a town home, this is still cool.
Of course, at the town home I didn’t have to maintain the yard at all. That was another unit; my unit’s responsibility was water. I haven’t had to take care of a lawn for 9 years, since I lived in Omaha. That yard was huge, and took around 3 hours to mow around two times a week.
I hated it.
Here, the developer’s rep suggested just using a weed whacker. I’ve tried it once so far and it didn’t seem to go too bad. We’ll see if it works long term. I got a cordless one and found out that trying to use it as a mower is a bit more than the battery was intended for. Had to stop partway and recharge it once to finish. Still, not too bad.
Heck, it beats mowing a full size yard with a normal mower. I’ll take it.
