ITSJOULIFE Landscaping & co
One of the big changes of owning a single-family home is having to handle all of the landscaping. At our previous condo, all of the landscaping was managed by the HOA so we didn’t have to worry about fixing sprinklers, mowing the lawn, or trimming the hedges.
Using the reel mower
The country boy teaching the city girl how to mow the lawn 👨🏻🌾👩🏻🌾 #myfirsttime Yea, I mowed the same area like 4x because I lost track of the lines 😆. It was easy to push and I eventually got the hang of the manual mower. @fiskarsamericas @itsjoulife #timelapse . . . #joufixerupper #landscaping #DIY #urbangardener #itsjoulife
We decided to take a break from the interior of the house to mow the lawn and check on the sprinkler system. I grew up mowing the lawn at my parent’s house so it wasn’t anything new to me. But J had never done it before and wanted to give it a try. We purchased an updated version of the old school manual reel mower since our yard is small and doesn’t require something more powerful. The reel mower is also very quiet since there is no motor. After showing J the basics, I let her finish up the front yard while I watched. Back and forth she went, occasionally mowing the same area over and over and over, but overall, a great job for the first time.
