It's not easy (or cheap) being green
We finally got our economic stimulus payment (the only time I will be grateful for our current president) - and decided that buying a lawn mower was well overdue. We had decided to buy a push reel mower since we don't have much of a lawn to speak of and we are trying to be as green as possible in all of our home purchases and updates. We had seen one at the local HD but they no longer carry them - Lowe's too - and they say they don't plan to order more. We look online and these things aren't not cheap. You can pretty much buy a basic mower for not much more. Ridiculous. So now we're trying to find one locally (probably what we should have done first) but it's not easy!
