some background info:
our property is less than 1 acre; the back part is wooded; once you subtract out the area covered by the house and a huge pine island in the front yard, we don't have that much to mow.
I can count on DH to mow the lawn about every other month (NOT satisfactory!) I never use the riding mower. I used a push mower when I would cut the grass (I wanted the exercise), but my old reliable push mower finally died for good.
so I was thinking about a reel mower. Once DH gets the grass cut, I figure I can keep it cut using a reel mower. The dogs wouldn't have to be stuck in the house (and one gets really nervous even inside the house when DH is using the mower), it's better for the environment, and I'd get some exercise.
for those of you who've used a reel mower, would you recommend it for my situation? How difficult is it to keep the blades sharp?
