    A goat is probably the answer.

    Post apocalypse mowing is something I have never even considered before. Good question and I like the answers so far. I just looked up to see if the reel mowers are even made anymore. They are, here's one I found for $190: http://www.amazon.com/Fiskars-Staysh.../dp/B0045VL1OO

    I don't think using fuel to mow after SHTF would be a good idea. I would save mine for the generator.

    We mow 2 acres that is down from almost 3. We are working on reducing that more. Small wedge that was a pain to mow is now rock and a small pond. Planted trees in some of what we no longer mow. I just do not have the time to mow that much

    mow? maybe
    not to mow? well I was going to inventory my stash x zombie bullets today, maybe tomorrow I mow.
    Goat? no way, not only no, but hell no-goats are evil.
    burn it - hum yah, that would work but um green grass doesn't burn so well I'll have to wait a couple months to do that?
    use gas to burn it, I think I have better uses for gas than burning weeds and grass.
    so yes that is a question a prepper would contemplate.

    That's what I did in my back yard. Planted fruit trees galore. I put mulch down a couple years back, but the earth consumed it. My soil is really nice now though haha, so I'll be remulching again here in the next couple months. It helped keep the weeds down for the short time it was there!

    I actually traded my mower away because I didn't need it. Still don't.

    I don't even like mowing now pre-shtf,the only reason I even do is so that our home doesn't look too red neckish.

    After shtf/grid down,I will mow around the garden area,which is in back and out of sight from the road.I do own a reel push mower (don't use it,but there when or if I need it).

    But for the front,I'm thinkin I will let it grow for a natural barrier (we have plenty of thistles) and rose bushes that surround my front porch as well as well as under a few selected windows.The way my house sits off the road,I think this would help to funnel any z's to my driveway/lane,which has a great line of sight for me and my prepping neighbors from many angles.

    I'd do away with lawn and flower gardens. Don't spend your time and resources unless you can eat it.

    I do have a couple of push mowers to keep things down right around the house , but some goats or sheep would be better option
