Once-a-week lawn-cutting is a convenience for the trade, but in the reel-mower era we would cut our own lawns more often, like every four or five days.

in a reel mowing scenerio we are talking about a quality type cut right? which of course must have a quality price?

you mean... there are people that are willing to pay for that, on a four day interval?

Reel mowing required reel men

You get your hair cut weekly don't you? Shave twice a day don't you?

People will pay for what they want Rhett, rich man lives well because he can.

The reel-mower era kind of predates the landscaper era. Mister Homeowner has a push mower, and his baby-boom children to push it. Cut it frequently enough and the clippings don't have to be bagged and discarded.

oh..... I thought yall fellas were trying to say we are going into, or are now in, the reel mowing era.

Pro Baseball uses reel mowers and those are thought to he high quality than "scag cuts", am I wrong?
______
on another note, I hope lawn manicuring has little to do with shaving, as I have recently begun a natural/jesus look.
which I originally intended to be permanent style......

would you shave the mayne of a grown male lion......no no no.
