A small way to go green ...

... use a reel mower. If you think about it, if you have (or are considering) a gas push mower, or even a electric (charge or plug-in) push mower, getting a reel mower uses the same exact amount of effort to get around your yard. The benefit? No use of fossil fuels (directly or indirectly) to power it.

I'm buying the one linked to above in a couple of weeks.

We have one of those, it's perfectly adequate for our limited amount of grass. It's not so hot at doing the edges though. Or maybe we just need to get the blades sharpened.

Ordered and on the way! Yes, all the reviews I've read about reel mowers is they're lousy at trimming. Fortunately, I have an electric trimmer. I guess I could get a manual weed whacker, but I'm trying to go green ... not crazy.
