Absolutely. With 10ft+ hedges front and rear (I like my privacyTongue) there's no way I'm doing my own gardening!

My Hungarian gardeners team are ALL called Roland. Or so they tell me. Wink

At least you don't have to remember different names when you are addressing different individuals........

I too had a petrol mower for over 25 years and when it died 3 years ago I went for a battery mower, best thing I ever did, no more filling and storing dangerous petrol in the shed and starting issues on the annual first cut.
My mower takes 2 18v batteries and they will cut my front and back lawns twice before they need charging.
Charging time is about 2 hours and replacement batteries are about £40, its so light and easy to move around that it has become (almost) a pleasure to mow the lawns!

Corded mower has served me well, i've not cut the wire since i was a teenager. i doubt a battery one would last me a decade.

Neither mains, battery or fuel, my mower is wait for it ......... manual .....!

Environmentally friendly, efficient and very good exercise, no cord to cut, no battery to replace, no fuel to fill and still gets amazed looks from the neighbourís children.

Mine is a modern example and poorly constructed I would really love an old manual mower the sort my grandparents would have had when exercise was a normal part of life rather than an extraneous activity.

Artificial grass - I haven't had to mow it for 3 years and only had to pull up a couple of mini-weeds in that time. No trips to the tip and the cats don't come near the lawn.

Sadly it might look fine, it might save you work, but itís doing nothing for our diminishing Bumble Bees, or for the all important earthworm.... never mind the Blackbird and Thrush who regularly hunt for worms on real grass lawns.

Plus, it will be just another lump of disposed of plastic one day....

Ok as an indoor putting course though. Wink)

Love watching the Blackbirds search after I've watered the lawn.

As for artificial - there was a spate of thefts reported around here of artificial lawns being stolen.

There's also the fact that the bloody moggies around here are quite adept at catching birds in flight. We still get the blackbirds, spadgers, woodies and robins around and they don't go short of fodder.
