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.

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

  6. 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!

  7. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  8. 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!

  10. 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.

  15. 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!

    ReplyDelete
  16. 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!!! :)

  17. 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).

    ReplyDelete
  18. 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!

  26. 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!

  28. 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.

  37. 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.

  51. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  52. 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.

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

    ReplyDelete
  54. 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.

  57. 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?

    ReplyDelete
  58. 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.

  70. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  71. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  72. 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!

  85. 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.

  89. 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.

  103. Carol,
    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!

  116. 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... ;)

  118. 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

  139. 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!!!

  141. I think it is usually early to mid May. But all the snow is already gone so it may be earlier this year.

  147. My hubby starts after the weather gets a little drier. The winter was fairly mild, so it should be soon.

  148. I'm in Central Indiana also, so it's around the same time that you do. My husband though will mow more on the early side because as soon as the grass starts to grow at all he's out there cutting it!! Great prize! Thanks so much! pamelashockley(AT)netscape(DOT)net

  150. Here in Seattle I have already mowed my lawn once this year. I think this is the earliest I have ever mowed. We had a very mild winter.

  152. It varies a lot around here, but usually somewhere between mid March and the end of April. After a few days of warm, rainy weather this past week, we'll probably have to mow soon!

    ReplyDelete
  157. I usually begin mowing toward the end of March, when the ground dries enough to not sink in when I walk on it. This year it may be as early as this weekend or early next week.

  159. My husband normally does the mowing so I don't know when he first mows. If I won this mower I might mow, though!

  161. I usually start mowing late April, or when my neighbors mow their grass

    ReplyDelete
  162. It's so different up here.. as soon as I see a lot of new growth.

    ReplyDelete
  163. So the question is when do I start mowing? Geesh, I've never even thought about it but I've already done it once a couple of weeks ago, so beginning of March I guess! Usually I have to mow a little later than I want to cause it won't stop raining!

  172. 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.

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

  175. 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.
