Win A Fiskars® Momentum™ Reel Mower!

Win A Fiskars® Momentum™ Reel Mower!

This spring I’m looking forward to mowing the lawn more so than ever before because I have a new Fiskars® Momentum™ Reel Mower in my garage, ready to bring out for the first mowing of the season.

I recall fondly the final mowing of the season last year, my first time to mow with this new reel mower. What fun that was!

Soon, in just three or four weeks, I’ll roll out my new Fiskars® reel mower again and begin a whole new season of mowing the lawn.

Let the countdown begin

According to my garden journal, I've started mowing for the season as early as March 26th and and as late as April 7th. It all depends on the weather and how quickly it warms up. I hope this is an “early” year. We’ll see. All I know is that right now each day is warmer than the day before, crocuses are blooming like crazy and soon the grass will start growing again and be ready for me to mow it!

Thank you, once again, to Fiskars® who sent me that mower to review last fall.

And thanks to Fiskars® , one lucky reader/commenter will soon have a new Fiskars® Momentum™ Reel Mower to start their mowing season with, too.

There are two steps to enter this giveaway:

1. Add your name and blog or website url to the Mr. Linky Widget below. If you don’t have a blog or website, just enter www.fiskars.com for the url.
2. Leave a comment and tell us when you generally start mowing your lawn in the spring.

Please make sure you leave your email address in your comment or make sure that it is easy to find on your blog so I can contact you if you win. You do not have to have a blog to enter. Email addresses can be left disguised along the lines of Indygardener AT G Mail dot Com and I’ll figure them out.

Usually we need to start mowing around mid April. I think it may be sooner this year though.

I've only lived in this house for a year so I can't say when I start mowing here. When I lived in North Carolina we really didn't have much of an off season. Mowing was just less frequent during the winter.

I do know that I failed to drain the gas from my mower last fall and now I'm not sure if it will even start this year. Good excuse to upgrade to a reel mower!

Lancashire rose said...

You do get some great products to try out. We haven't used a reel mower for years. Mowing should have been done a couple of weeks ago because the grass on our septic field is getting higher than the wildflowers. Now it will have to wait until after they have bloomed. This would be a great test for a reel mower. You have such great giveaways, Carol.Thanks.

Joanna said...

We put off mowing at the end of last season, so the grass was pretty long during the winter- and will necessitate earlier mowing this spring. Oh my, I can't wait until it starts growing again! Also- high of 60+ in Indy today?! Hooray!

I would love this mower, my son has been asking me for the last couple of years to buy him one, but money was too tight. In Michigan, it really depends on when we first start mowing. If the spring is warm and dry, it can be the end of April. The last couple of years, though, it has been not until June.

We don't have to mow until mid-May at the earliest, which is fine with me becuase that's not my favorite thing in the world to do. Right up there with going to the dump.

mobrien said...

Fiskars are the best tools I've ever had for the garden, especially the folding saws.

Gail said...

I have a small lawnette that would love this mower...But the grass hasn't started growing yet! Soon tho! gail

Dave@TheHomeGarden said...

A very cool prize! Generally I'll start mowing sometime in the next two weeks. So far though with the cold temperatures the grass hasn't really begun growing. It's been warm the last 4-5 days now so it should be breaking dormancy. The rains we'll get this week will be a good trigger - I can't wait to get mowing, I should probably not enjoy it so much!

Kimberly said...

In SE Florida, we usually start moving regularly in March, depending on the winter and type of grass, of course. I've mowed the "weeds" a couple of times this winter, but so far the Florida friendly Bahia is dormant due to this year's long winter.
Awesome giveaway! I HOPE I'm the lucky winner!!! :)

Mr. McGregor's Daughter said...

I'm so tempted to cheat by making up names and getting email addresses for them. This mower would be perfect for us. I don't usually record the first mowing of the year, although I seem to record the last one. Odd, that, but usually we start mowing around the end of April or the beginning May, after the Scilla have finished blooming. I know this because I have to fence around the ones in the lawn so my husband doesn't mow them down (there are always a few casualties).

Cindy, MCOK said...

You know, I can't remember exactly when we usually start mowing, since that's the Executive Producer's job. I know it will be later than usual this year because the grass actually went dormant!

I start mowing each spring the day my neighbor does, he gets home from work an hour before everyone else, so when we get home he has just started, then like dominoes we all mow ours too!

I let my lawn grow a little longer and taller to conserve water here in dry Texas, so I don't start mowing until March, typically. This year, though, our spring is late, so my lawn isn't even green yet!

My husband (the dear man) did the first mow of the season about 3 wks ago. He has only done it that one time so far but it needs it again already. We live in western Washington and so have not had the snowfall that you on the East Coast have had. I would so love to have one of those mowers. They look like so much fun. Thanks for this opportunity.

I have been wanting one of these forever! Its too hard for me to start our other mower so i have to wait for my husband to do it...and he doesn't have a lot of time.

Benjamin Vogt said...

Shoot, I try not to mow until June if I can, even with an electric mower I still feel bad using it. Witha non eclectric, I could keep uo with my neighbors who starting mowing well before their over-fertilized yards are half green in mid April.

Samia said...

We generally start around April. My husband would LOVE this!

Michelle said...

I don't mow until I absolutely have to! So it's usually mid-April when I start...

My flowers would love this new mower--it would ensure that Husband wouldn't mow them over in trying to get too close to the garden:) Usually we don't start mowing until April, but with the warm temperatures today, the grass is greening up quickly, so who knows. It hit 70 here today!

Aisling said...

We usually start mowing in April, but if it needs it sooner, we do it sooner. Fiskars is certainly a lawn care product to trust. I didn't know they made mowers.

Michelle said...

The lawn needs mowing now. We have had a lot of rain and plenty of sunny days. As soon as the ground dries out enough, it is time to mow.

Kim and Victoria said...

Nice contest! We usually start mowing our lawn mid-April.

beckie said...

Carol, how exciting for you to have one of these. I can imagine your delight in going more 'green'. I do NOT mow-hubby does that and he usually starts in early to mid April. Or..just before the big Easter egg hunt so that freshly mown grass gets tracked all through the house. :) If I am chosen, I will give this to Rose. She has wanted one for a while now so she can have more flower beds and her hubby won't have to trim around them.

Susan Tomlinson said...

I grow buffalo grass and blue grama on my lawn, so I don't actually mow until around the middle of june, and then only once more after that, toward the end of July. I'm thinking a Fiskars reel mower is *exactly* what I need--I mean, why fire up a noisy gas mower for such a tiny lawn?

Heather said...

I usually hold out until I think the neighbors will be annoyed by the shagginess of the lawn... so usually I start about early to mid May.

We usually start mowing early April, except for that one year we planted some winter rye. We had to mow more than once a week that year, starting in early March!

Usually right about this time. It is starting to get warm (upper 60s, low 70s) and we have had plenty of rain so it needs it. Now to find the time.

tom mcCain said...

My birthday is May 1 and I always try to give myself a birthday present by not mowing before May 2, if at all possible. In any case, I'm a proponent of tall grass so I let it grow in the spring to get strong and set my mowers as high as they'll go. I have both a B&D cordless electric mower I bought in 2002 and a Craftsman reel mower, both of which set to 3.5 inches though I'd prefer 4 inches. Right now, it's mid-March in Central Indiana and grass is nowhere near ready to mow.

John said...

I guess the lawn service usually started the end of March/April depending on the weather. We've cancelled them and would like to start doing our own yardwork. As we don't have a lawnmower currently, winning one would be great!

I think we typically start mowing in mid-April. This reel mower sounds so fantastic as we are still using my husband's grandfather's reel mower, which I would guess was built using the heaviest steel & lumber they could find at the time!

Earth Girl said...

Since I don't have a garden journal, I can only guess that it is late April for the small lawn around my home (perfect for a reel mower). It's much later at the tree farm and we use a mower pulled behind a tractor. The meadow will get mowed as soon as the ground is dry enough.

I generally start mowing in early April... that's a most interesting mower... hadn't seen one prior to now! LC

I would say usually late April since the grass grows slow in this part of the country.

Jill-O said...

I've been obsessing about this mower since you first reviewed it. Fiskar scissors are the best and I can only assume that a reel mower would be the same. I have a small yard and don't really need the smelly gas push mower that I've been using for the last several years. My email address is on the About Me page of my blog - easy to find.

I was unusually bold and retweeted the link. Almost forgot: mowing usually starts in May for me, but there have been a few years when I began mowing in April.

Great post! This is a wonderful mower as you know--I saw it in action at the GWA conference in Raleigh last fall. While we mow with a battery powered mower, I this this is a fabulous substitute--and perhaps easier to handle in spots!

I just adore your blog posts especially the one about the fairies! And I'm so jealous that you have things in bloom! Even my early daffs aren't up yet! I just have snowdrops still!

lakechicagoshores said...

Mowing starts in earnest about when the daffodils finish in mid-April. It's then a sprint to keep up with the grass until it gets hot here in June or July.

We have a reel mower, but it doesn't look half as cool (or effective) as the Fiskars. Gardening tool lust strikes early this year... ;)

KowgirlsRule said...

We usually start mowing sometime around Easter. Spring is usually in the air and the grass has started growing.

Susan C said...

I've never actually noted when I first cut the grass. Maybe I should put it in the garden records. It'll be late this year because it's been so cold and wet. What I have right now is mostly soggy, brown leftovers from last year's lawn. You're several hundred miles north of me but it sounds like it's warmer there. My crocus aren't even budding yet

We start mowing as soon as the snow melts and it doesn't look like its going to snow again. The first mow of the year happens after a general cleanup of sticks, leaves, trash, etc that has built up over the winter. Then we mow, fertalize, plant and do everything else thats needed for a happy fresh yard all spring and summer. Thanks for the giveaway, this would be great! Low noise, no polution, no gas!! Woooo!!!

We start mowing in March down here.

I've been using a reel mower for several years now love it -- much easier on my lungs, tree roots, and the environment. Unfortunately, the one I have has worn out because it wasn't as well designed as it looks like this one is. My handles have gotten rickety.

I generally start mowing around Easter as the grass comes out of its winter slumber.

I started a couple years ago with a Sunlawn MM2 and realized the earlier I start my mowing season, the better my initial cuts go. So, as of last year I'll start my mowing season the last week of march. Here in NC the weather typically is just right to begin.

This February has been the earliest that we mowed - on Feb 24th - in Seattle. El nino probably has a part in that.

I live in the south, so we mow at least once a month, even through the winter. Thanks!
