Nice and New: Neuton Battery-Powered Mower

I've already shown you plenty of ways to make your home eco chic indoors, but there are also some ways you can eco-fy the space outside your home. For one, you can sprout a couch which will actually produce oxygen (!), and you can also be smart about the hour you water your garden. Beyond that, you can trade in your loud, gas-guzzling lawn mower for the Neuton Battery-Powered Mower ($479). Obviously, this mower cuts back on CO2 emissions, but it doesn't contaminate your ground water either. According to the product description, "The EPA estimates that of the 800 million gallons of gas used to fuel lawn mowers in the U.S. every year, about 17 million gallons are spilled, which can contaminate ground water." Running on a 24-volt battery, the mower will cut your grass for 45 to 60 minutes, and it also features a mulching plug, bagger, side discharge chute, safety key and two wrenches. Now if you could only hire someone to do it for you, sit back, and enjoy an ice-cold brew, poolside . . .

We were going to get one of these when we moved here to the desert but then we decided to just get rid of the lawn and do xeriscaping instead. Had we kept the grass we definitely would have gotten one of these though.

very cool. the price isn't much more than (or around the same price as) a regular mower - so hopefully some people will switch to this. when i had a lawn at one of the places i rented, we used a push-mower and got exercise at the same time. :)
