The Real Reason I Like Mowing the Lawn

By Allyn Paul, filed under Life & Lawns.

A lot of people have asked me over the years about mowing the lawn, and specifically they ask, “Why is it that you enjoy mowing your lawn so much?”

“Well,” I reply, “if your lawn looked as good as mine, you’d want to spend as much time with it as possible.”

Of course, that is the sarcastic answer, but there is some truth to it. If your lawn looks nice and green–healthy and thick as a shag carpet–you are going to want to keep it nicely groomed as it adds to your overall curb appeal in ways that no other piece of your real estate investment can.

But there is more to it than all of that.

Here are the top three reasons why I truly do enjoy mowing my lawn.

  1. No interruptions. That’s right guys, I NEVER get interrupted when I am mowing the lawn. That is because no one wants to try and yell over top of the engine noise in order to get my attention. On top of that, I am usually sufficiently dirty while mowing, thus closing off any chores that my wife may require be done inside the house.
  2. “Me” time. This one goes along with the first one fairly well. Since I am not getting interrupted or disturbed, mowing the lawn gives me a solid hour or more to just get lost in my own thoughts about absolutely nothing. To me, that is priceless time that I just can’t get anywhere else.
  3. Bragging time. Finally, when I am finished mowing my thick and green lawn, I have a few minutes to look around and show my neighbor how much better my grass is compared to his. All in good fun, of course.

So those are my top three reasons for enjoying a good, fresh lawn cutting. How about yours?
