A Year of Savings - mow your own lawn

I just spent about an hour outside. I mowed our front and back yard, watered all the plants and trees and did a little work in our container garden. Really, I like to run the mower. It is good exercise and I just prefer to do it myself. When Jeff gets home, he will do the edging and blow the grass off the sidewalks and driveway.
Most of our neighbors are pretty serious about keeping their yards looking like golf courses. They water every day. Some mow their own yards but the majority of them use lawn services.

If you do much mowing or garden work, I suggest you have a dedicated pair of shoes just for the yard. These are my yard shoes. In Oklahoma, we have red dirt. Red dirt mixed with all the grass really stains your shoes too. So I just keep this pair in the garage and only wear them for outside chores.
