I consider it wisdom to switch from scythe to power scythe as conditions change. The scythe depends on a consistent speed to cut uniformly With tangled conditions the speed can not be maintained but the power supplied to the little scythes on the blade keeps them at a consistent speed no matter what speed or direction of swing.
It seems to cut quite well when the grass is young in late spring, but as the summer wears on the grass falls over and it is much more of a struggle to do. However my husband seems to enjoy walking round with the petrol mower

Another fence is here, with a less-impressive gatehouse structure providing egress.
Thanks for the suggestion and hello neighbor. I didn't consider living on a boat until now, but compared with land buying and rent prices, it would be roughly equivalent to get a used yacht and rent a slip in a marina.
