By the time you add in secure fencing, it may not be the cheapest option. Probably the most tasty option, though.

I can attest the fencing makes it not a cheap option. And I didnít even fence in a lot. Just enough for the dogs to run around.

Do you have wiener dogs? Those fences wouldn't keep in my dogs.

I went through a similar thing last year: New place with more lawn, didn't want to walk it.

I ended up with a Deere X330 w/42" mower deck, & am pretty happy with it. Easy to maneuver, which I was concerned about. I did add a spinner knob to the steering wheel, which helps a lot going around small planting areas, sharp turns, etc.

I used it a lot with a cart when we spread 200 bags of mulch around. Made it a lot easier than carrying the bags, or using a wheelbarrow.

That ain't grass, it's weeds.
FIL lived in Leesburg for 10 years. He even had a sprinler
system installed to water his weeds 3 times a week.

What Floridians call grass, Mid-westerners call crab-grass.
Tons upon tons of fertilizers with crab grass killer are sold in this region.

St. Augustine is our preferred grass here, too. Crabgrass is something completely different....not St. Augustine.
