Welcome to the future of lawn mowing, where there’s no gasoline, no noisy engine and the mower propels itself. Thanks to this fan-favorite Greenworks mower, pushing a heavy machine across the yard is a headache of the past.
The mower’s ingenious rear-wheel drive can be set to different speeds, which means you can power across bumpy terrain while steering with one hand. Fully electric and wonderfully compact, this machine is well-designed, well-constructed and, as one reviewer put it, “the bomb.” The reviews are packed with smitten users, like this man who’s the envy of his neighborhood: “This is a great lawn mower. First, it’s so quiet. Secondly, so easy to start. Third, the self-propulsion makes cutting the grass a breeze - I spend so much less time mowing. Last, all my neighbors are jealous that I have a battery lawnmower that they are going to get one too. It makes one of the worst chores of summer not so onerous; I no longer dread going out to mow the yard.” At $100 off, now seems like a good time to make the neighbors jealous.

The role of architects in creating built environments that are deeply rooted to the communities that they are in is something people should learn to appreciate.

Not that it cares for the other works of mercy (clothing the naked, healing the sick, feeding the hungry) either.It is this wr
