Mowing the lawn is one of the most tedious tasks of summer. Every weekend, I dread having to drag out the lawn mower, edge the lawn and trim the edges.
It's a never-ending cycle, and it's hard to stay motivated when I know that I'll have to do it all over again in just a few days.
The heat is another challenge, especially when it's humid. Sweat drips down my face as I push the lawn mower around the yard, and I can feel the sun beating down on my back. I'm exhausted by the time I finish, and all I want to do is take a nap.
I also feel frustrated by the fact that I have to spend money buying materials to maintain the lawn. Every few months I need to buy new blades for the mower, edging shears, and fertilizer or weed killer. It all adds up, and it's money that could be spent on something more enjoyable.
I understand why people pay for lawn maintenance, and I'm seriously considering it this year. It's a lot of money, but it may be worth it to save myself the frustration of doing it myself. I could use the extra time to do something more enjoyable, and the money I save on lawn maintenance materials could be spent on something more fun.
I'm not giving up on DIY lawn care just yet, though. I'm hoping to speak to a lawn professional about how to make the task easier and more efficient. They may have some tips that can help me save time and money, and make the process less frustrating. Who knows, maybe with the right advice I can make mowing the lawn a task that I actually look forward to!
