Do you or your partner mow your own lawn?

Or do you get a mowing contractor in regularly to do this?

What type of mower do you use?

We don't mow the lawn. We have guinea pigs that do it for us. They do it so well, we don't actually have a lawn anymore.
I sure do as they use a nice heavy roller mower and the grass look so much nicer than when I did it myself.
I used to do it myself when on acreage and had a ride on mower, and that was fun, but in suburbia, it is relatively cheap to get it done.

No, we mow our own lawn; my husband does the edges and I do the rest. That's usually how it goes anyway. I'm not sure what type of mower we use, but it is not electric.

I do it ALL!

Lucky meeeeee. :(

I use a little electric one, that has a catcher.
Just brilliant.
I used to use one of those but was always worried I would go over the cord!

My husband does it. If he ever decided he didn't want to do it, I would pay someone as it's not a task I would relish.
I tried mowing once for about 5 minutes when I was 16 and decided then and there it was an experience there was no need to repeat. Apart from the flying grass making me itch for hours, who am I to prevent the Mowing people earning a living. I 'm happy to pay someone to mow. The people I have now are fabulous. They drive past and check to see if it really needs mowing which I really appreciate.
I am very lucky indeed! My neighbour across the road does mine for me when he has the mower out to do his own! When I was still well enough to work,I used to pay to have it done,as I have been unable to handle a mower since my teens when all my illness really set in. Pity,as I used to actually enjoy mowing! Plus it was a great way to earn extra pocket money back in the 70's when the dollar did not go far at all!!
No, I have a lawn the size of a postage stamp so it gets done most weeks with a push mower. which is quite fun and easy actually so no problem. My landlady has a gardener though who turns up once every three months and he 'does the edges'!!!
No choice. Have to pay mower-man.
No. Whilst we are still fit and able, we might as well save our money and do it ourselves.
When we rented, in our very early years, my husband mowed the lawns, but we haven't had any sort of lawn at all, since we had our house built in the late '70's.
