The Ultimate Low-Maintenance Mower: Sheep
If the thought of mowing a large acreage has held you back from buying your perfect property then it may be time to reconsider. One couple in Woolwich Township have replaced most of their mowing with a flock of sheep.
The sheep, kept at a ratio of 5 per acre, tend the lawn by grazing through it and fertilising along the way. They appear to be the quietest lawn maintainer about, apart from this automatic mower. They don't require a docking station to recharge and they don't have batteries which eventually need replacing.
And while the lawn may not end up like your proverbial putting green, it will remain neat and tidy providing the sheep are left on their own.
There are other benefits too. They can provide wool for your clothing and food for the table. And if you have young children at home, this is one lawn mower they will be able to play with.
