You can probably dumpster a shell pretty easily. I see them by mailboxes all of the time on garbage day.

If you were really green wouldn't you let your lawn just grow?

When ever I get my own place I plan on moving to the city. Hopefully it will be small enough yard to use a push mower.

Because mowing the lawn is not an enjoyable activity to me.
