Karen, when I was young(er), we lived in a rented place with HUGE and I mean huge, gardens. You could fit 4 tennis courts within its total area. There were wide paths linking the various parts of the garden but guess what? They were all grassed... our poor gardener spent most of his time mowing as there were lawned areas too.

Cassandra — at least large expanses of lawn are relatively easy to mow — and even, dare I say, fun! 😜

Once the lawn mower got going... Our old Atco needed that cord pulling and pulling and pulling to get it started I recall!
