Back to the future
If you don’t remember push reel lawn mowers, enjoy your youth. Back in the day, lawn mowers ran with leg power. The very-green machines have been streamlined and improved to make the job easier. The hottest version is the Brill Razorcut Push Reel Mower, 17 pounds of silent, sharp style for $239 (above). If you’d prefer to shop around, Planet Natural has a variety to peruse.
Speaking of days gone by, a classic lawn fixture was the clothesline, where apparel was hung to dry in the fresh air. A new version, umbrella shaped, is $169.
And when the day is done, the garden looks great, you’re pooped but pleased – here is your final destination, below, hand-woven by Maya artists of the Yucatan, $49.
