Cutting the Grass with a Reel Mower

I've totally gone old school with Scott's Classic Reel Mower. Calling it a mower doesn't seem right, though. It just cuts the grass.

I purchased this one in very early spring of this year (not a sponsored product), so I've been using mine all season. I wanted to do a quick review of this forgotten way of lawn maintenance. It's definitely caught the attention of my neighbors. So much that they had to give it a go on my lawn and even borrowed it to try it out on their own lawn.

Generally, I like it. I think it's best for the lush lawns, though. 



This review sparked my interest after my gas mower quit on me. I will agree with her, I no longer hate mowing the lawn. I'm not sure if it takes me longer to cut the grass or not. If it's half way enjoyable, who cares? 

Also, this article is good for organic lawns if you are cheap and lazy like me. The reality is people still want lawns.

It's not a perfect product, but I'm going to stick with it. Hopefully, I will only need to cut the grass in the front yard in the near future. I'm slowly moving towards more hand tools and less gas powered tools.
