This year I gave up on electrical and gas machines and decided to get a push mower. I won’t mislead here, it’s not as easy but quieter and my grass lawn is so small it seemed a reasonable commitment. The whole experience is quite nostalgic actually. The smell of fresh cut grass and boyhood memories of cutting neighbours’ lawns to earn money for my first bike. If you feel so inclined, I’d recommend “The Silent Cut” by Mascot – a good heavy duty option. Check it out here.
