Who mows the yard/lawn at your house?

Why?

I'll answer as the first reply.

Just curious, thanks, ladies. :-)

We hire it out. Same thing with house cleaning.

Me and my girls do the mowing.  I do the weird/difficult stuff (around the edges, the driveway, high/thick, etc.)  My girls do the time-consuming, back and forth and back and forth... stuff (I can't be out in the sun working that hard for that long, so we share the work).

Why?  DH would be the one doing it, but he hurt his neck/back.  If he mows, he can't do ANYTHING for like 2 weeks, literally!!!  My sons are too short/young, so me and my girls do this "men's work". (I say that facessiously (sp).)

He does.  He likes to so I let him have at it.

Dh normally does it, unless he is gone for a training or something then i do it.  When DD gets older she will mow the lawn

 Same here.  I intended to be the first reply, but I ended up being like the fourth.  DH used to do it, but he can't; so me and our girls do it.  When our boys are big/old enough, they'll do it too. :-)

The homeowner's association fees pays for lawn service for the entire neighborhood so it's a non-issue.  We both would if we had to.
