So does yours. Every method has pros and cons. There are enough reasons against a lawnmower to use a rake instead of it. Neither method is inherently superior.
You just solved the "problem" by throwing money and power at it. Much like Trump actually.
Touche but that won't stop me from looking down at people that do rake. More than likely they have a lawn mower and it would probably cost $1 of gas at most to go over their lawn with the mower.
So? Maybe they enjoy raking? Maybe they like being in the garden feeling the fresh air without the disturbance of loud noises? Maybe their neighbors too?
Why would you even go to the trouble of mowing and even pay for it? Just buld a wall around the trees and make Mexico pay for it.
