Heyya wildone! I enjoy working in my yard. I don't mind at all to mow. I like getting out. It's a nice change from housework. My b/f does most of the mowing now but me and the girls help. I think it's important for us to know how to do things like that because you never know when you may have too. I am pretty independent and have often had to do things on my own.I don't suppose there is anything in life that is a man's job..LOL

I consider myself pretty independent, too, and I like bing outside as well. I have learned in the last few years that we all need a little help occasionally. Kathy.

You are obviously a modern woman who doesnt think that jobs are male and female and that is a good thing and the making of a successful home.Lets be relaistic tehre will be times when the person who normally does a particular chore may not be able to do becaus eof fatique or sickness and the other party shoudl be able to fill in where necessary .Granted there are some things that I would not let my wife do because of physical limitations but if she is capable then that would be ok

I have never done this as my son's always had this job. where I live now the yard is mowed every month and if it needs to be done in between then I usually get my son to use a weedwacker to tidy it as we do not have a lawnmower. If I had to then I would learn to do it and then just do it. As long as it would not put out my back!

I do some of the mowing sometimes the husband gets impatient because he can do it faster, but I do my fair share. If the would leave me be I would happily do the whole thing. We purchased a push mower that was light weight enough for me. We are trying to do little things to be a little more "green" I guess it is one step at a time for us.

There arises no question of false pride in executing any of the household chores...after all it is your home.

I never have considered it man's work. The thing about it is, mother and my sisters never did mow the grass. I always had a lot of allergies, for one thing. We were protected. Mother always told me that I just wasn't expected to do things like that. Believe it not, I always considered myself a tomboy mainly because I liked working with horses, though. I kind of wish now that I had been taught how to cut grass because I see how expensive it can get paying somebody to do it and I have a big yard, too. We always thought there was going to be some money, though. I know a lot of women who say they love cutting their grass. Kathy.

I don't think it would be hard to learn. I don't have a lawn mower, though, and I can't afford to buy a new one. After daddy passed away, mother got the lawn mower. However, since she never did cut grass, my nephews just took it over and there's no telling what happened to it. They probably tore it up. She was always a little too easy on people, bless her heart.

I dont think it is a "mans job" to mow the lawn, however I have never done it and obviously I am a female....LOL Its not that I think I cant do it...its the point that I dont want to, and if I add that to my list of what all I do around here then I will have no time of my own....LMAO!!! besides, I will gladly get out there and do the weeding, plant flowers, pull out bricks/pavers and build me a patio...since we did that last year and I was there in the middle of the yard moving, shifting, and helping out just as much as my hubby....LOL If I had to do it, I guess I would, but I just really dont have the interest in mowing the lawn along with everything else!! happy mylotting.

I love gardening but when I was on my own doing everything my self was part of everyday life ,since marrying my wonderful husband who insists on doing all the hard work ,the heavy work is his department.The lawn mower is a petrol one and is very heavy so rather than take off fast and mow the flowers it is left for him to do,new toy and all that.I do the weeding.deadheading.trimming ect.We tend to do most jobs in the garden between us .Without realising we have seperated out into mens work and womans work although we will swop in necessary.It suits us fine ,but digging is definately his department in fact all the heavy work is his,I just do the pretty bits.xx

I've always loved mowing grass and working in the yard...I get it from both my Mom and my Dad. It's one of the things that I miss getting to do. [b]**AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~[/b]
