For a lot of homeowners across the country, fall brings with it a welcome respite from a long season of lawn mowing. When I was a kid, we always mowed our lawn with a gasoline-powered push mower, while my grandparents favored a riding gasoline-powered mower for their gigantic green spread.
I've been meaning to invest in a human-powered mower for a while now, and while I could get away with a push-style one, given the tiny plot of grass in our backyard, some people may not be so keen to try a human-powered mower on their big backyards. So I was both amused and inspired when I came across these human-powered riding mowers over at Treehugger. Somebody obviously took a lot of time designing and constructing them. I think they're both brilliant and hilarious.
What about you? Willing to try one of these on your lawn next summer?
