I disagree..but it probably depends on how much lawn you have!
I use the snowblower probably an average of 10 times a year. 40 minutes each time = about 7 hours of snowblowing per year.
Lawn mowing = 2 hours every 1.5 weeks April to November. (November is leaf pickup with the mower) - That's 23 mowing instances per year, 2 hours each = 46 total hours per year. compared to 7 hours snowblowing.
For me, snowblowing is waaaaaaaaay easier and far less hassle.
But I have a half-acre yard, lots of garden beds to mow around, and I use a combination of gas weed wacker, push mower, and riding mower. Winter is far easier, even in the heavy snow belt of Western NY.
Probably not every day, it would depend on the nearby plants and trees. If you had cottonwood trees nearby it would be a nightmare in the spring, and oak tree acorns, and maple tree seed pods could be an issue, but not all year. yeah, keeping it clean could be a hassle..but in this guys case, he could probably run a blower over the lawn once or twice a week, 5 minutes each time..he still has far less maintance than a real traditional lawn.
Yeah but the good part aboot it is no weed seed trees, or Charlie, crabby or Dandy.:yahoo::yahoo::yahoo::yahoo::yahoo: But I am almost sure that the clowns that run this town. have already put the kibosh aboot doing something like that on the books. after all they are all TREE HUGGING HIPPIES that run this town.:emoticon-south-park
