Do you own a lawnmower?


One of the perks of living full-time in an RV is never having to mow the lawn, or do much landscape work in general. It’s nice to live in an RV park where professional landscapers maintain your “yard” for you, isn’t it?

If you’re like one of these people in this funny video, perhaps it’s best that you don’t own a lawnmower…

Tell us in the poll below if you own one or not. Thanks for voting!

Yes, battery power mower works great.

Unfortunately, yes, I do. But with almost daily showers in South Florida, the weeds win in height over the grass before I can finish the entire yard. I used to love mowing and tending to the landscape….now, I abhor it and ecstatically looking forward to becoming a year-round nomad.

Yes, a push mower. I love the smell of cut grass & I like walking

Hi, cee. Yes, I like the smell of fresh-mowed grass also. I have a huge cedar tree in my back yard and the branches hang down to the ground. I used to tell my folks that there’s nothing like the smell of fresh-mowed cedar. Kinda Christmasy, in fact. 😀 —Diane at

One of the perks of living in the desert, no lawn and no mowing!

We do own a lawnmower, but it is battery powered and due to non-use for 10+ years the batteries need to be replaced. Our lawn service people use their own lawnmowers on our yard.

Yes, but I leave it home when we travel.

No room to store one in the motorhome. Wait a minute. I’m a fulltimer and I don’t own a yard to mow.

We’re half timers with a tiny 50 foot wide lot in western SD so yes we have a push (gas powered) mower.
I abandoned the true push mowers when gas or electric motors on top of the mowers came along. (Ask your parents or grandparents about real push mowers sometime.)

Nope, no lawn at summer or winter home. Lots and lots of native plants though. Now, if there were a mower that just weeded. . .

We have a lawn, therefore a couple of mowers. Love to mow our acreage. Summer time in Florida sometimes dictates that I mow twice a week. I love it. I couldn’t full time because I couldn’t take my yard with me. lol

I don’t own a mower. Converted our lawn to no maintenance 15 yrs ago due to the drought. I do mow the in-laws lawn (or maybe weeds).

Are we scraping the bottom of the barrel for poll topics?

Yes we are full time RV people and I have a rider mower because I am not mowing with push mower I have a ( lot) size when we decide to up and move we just trailer the mower with us along with all our other belongings. It’s a hassle but it’s well worth it 😊

Yes, because we’re still at home. If I was FT I would have a small battery weed whacker to clean around picnic tables, trailer, water/sewer connections, etc. Places a mower doesn’t usually reach. And of course, the grass, if necessary.

My husband is 71 and loves to mow our huge yard with his riding lawn mower. It keeps him busy and active. He also weedeats and sprays. He is now wanting a zero-turn mower.

I answered “Yes” because my wife owns a lawn mower which my brother-in-law used to mow the lawn (seven acres) until recently, when his health got too bad to ride the mower. They now hire someone to do it. I, myself, haven’t mowed a lawn in over ten years and have no desire to start doing it now.

Our wonderful Honda Harmony push mower sits in our gardening shed now, because I hired Jose to come once a week and mow for us. He does a FAR better job than I EVER did, and he fertilizes and sprays weed killer (not in the same spot . . .).

Mower? Yes we have two riders and a push mower too – with a 1.25 acre homestead we need them. The rest of the year they blow snow!

Several years ago, I noted a yard in Sun City, CA with a push mower surrounded by small white rock and parked in the middle of an obligatory green rock yard. I presume it was a monument to their past memories! Creative and impressive!
