Push Lawn Mowers from Green Living

Our teeny patch of grass is finally showing signs of life (this is our very first yard and we couldn't be more excited that spring is here). While we've never given much thought to mowing, our new reality includes lawn care. Talk about a foreign concept. One thing we'll have to invest in is a push lawn mower...

We'll be going the push route because a power mower would be an unnecessary investment for such a small yard, because it will feel great to work our legs and arms, and most importantly, because it's the better environmental choice:

Did you know that the 2-cycle engines found on most power mowers, blowers, and weed-eaters contribute up 5-10% of the air pollution in Southern cities?

Did you know that cutting a lawn with a manual reel mower is much easier on the grass and provides a healthier lawn?

Did you know that modern manual reel mowers are easier to use than most people think and require about 1/20th the maintenance of a power mower?

Mowing with a reel mower is smooth, quiet, and puts you more in touch with the environment around your house. Make the switch to a manual reel mower today. Burn calories instead of gasoline.
