It really won’t mow itself – Where to get the tools?

By johnboy - 16 December 2008 50

There’s no shortage of emos around here, and both Kevin Rudd and Barack Obama have been elected.

Despite all this the lawn stubbornly refuses to mow itself. The landlord is getting antsy and the housemates can offer no guarantees that nasty things do not lurk in the tall grass.

So I need a brush-cutter, a petrol one.

Any recommendations on where to hire one?

i use jim’s mowing. all the woes of petrol, repairing lawnmowers that have hit a kids toy, etc, etc, are not mine.

the cost per week for a mow is cheaper than hiring a brush cutter, it seems.

sammy that is an awesome idea! much better for the environment too!

How about a goat? I’ve seriously considered a goat hire business where I rock up to your house and loan you a goat for a week to eat all your weeds.

A light spray with roundup will surely cramp its style?

Bit of a stretch calling that patch of weeds “lawn” JB! 🙂

Burn it. If anyone complains just tell them you had a lightning strike in your back yard.

Kennards will hit you for about $90 for a scrub cutter for a day.

Bribe a gardening friend with beer or you could contact TAMS and tell them you have sown the yard with Mexican Feather Grass.

Just put a mower on high and mow it, then put it lower, and mow it again…

Not with all the strange bits of metal and hard plastic hiding out there.

Pay a teenager to do it, and be sure to get him/her to sign a waiver.

Ah… fair call.
