Who does the mowing at your house?

Ok, it's that time of year.  Get the lawn mower out and have at your lawn.  Who does the majority of the yard work at your home?  Do you like getting your hands dirty or leave it for hubby?

Hubby. He likes to do all the stuff outside. When we moved here, he decided to get a riding lawn mower so he's the neighborhood redneck out there with his beer and Crocs with black socks mowing the yard. So proud.......

Jenny- lol!!! Somebody has to fill that position!

We only have a city lot, but Joe does the mowing and tends to the vegetable garden. He uses a push mower, so no beer until after he's done. I "maintain" the flowers beds and help with raking.

B does the mowing and I rake it up. But after the first couple times of the year, I normally have to bag him to do it. He mowed the front today but not the back. Don't have to worry bout the beer, he doesn't drink it. ;)

I do everything, like Katie I have a small city lot.  I even go to neighbors and help them because my lot is so small. I love the excersize from it.  I have always loved having that alone time.

I'll have a beer while mowing! Hubby does most the yard work, but I usually mow to save him time. He does the edging, weed whacking, and blows the clippings.

When we moved to Medina, we have a pretty good size yard so it takes some time especially with how much water the backyard can get sometimes.  It was all hubby, i do weeding, watering flowers and raking.  Then we got a mower of our own(push kind), and I started sharing that too.  Now last summer and now with this schedule, I do it.  Hubby just doesn't have the time and I've found he's way more worried about it than the rest of the house, so maybe if the yard stuff is done then maybe he'll help with the inside of the house?  i dunno, just a theory.  I did the back yard today, man forgot how much energy it takes and how bad our yard is at the beginning of the season.
