This one is for H

Sorry to hear about your overgrown lawn.

As I said in my Shout, can't you borrow a goat, sheep of even a horse to see to the cutting?

A friend of mine employs two fully automated lawn mowers, that keep the grass short and can also pull a cart/carriage and can be ridden as well. (Only by short legged people or children, but there you go.)

They require a totally different maintenance programme, than the one Mick provides, but there are usually quite a few volunteers who like to help.

Ideal when you live in the countryside. And an extra incentive for friends and family, to flock to your 'B&B' in the summer months!   ;)

I'll pass thanks - I can't stand the smell, worse than lions - and they stink. Possibly slightly more fragrant than camels though.

Never noticed a particular smell. But these are kept in stables with the door permanently open, so that might be the explanation.

Enjoy your guests! (What's for dinner?)
