I will definitely not be mowing my own lawn once I have the means to spend money on services like that. There isn't a worse feeling for me than mowing the lawn on a nice day, knowing that I could be hitting golf balls instead.
I find it amazing that this type of attitude is so rare here.
Everybody is just different. There is no right or wrong here. Some people hire it out. Some people actually enjoy it.
And there is nothing magic about lawn mowing. I cut my own grass, but was happy to pay for a maid service. I enjoy a lot of home improvement stuff, but I’d hire some stuff out if I just wasn’t in the mood that day, etc.
But everybody should spend their money the way that makes the most sense for them. Some really value a sense of self sufficiency, and want to not depend on anybody else. And others want to hire everything out, and do something else with their time.....
There’s no wrong answer here.
But maybe it’s rare here, because this is forum of people who manage all their own finances. I.e. it’s a self selected group of people who are willing to take on things that some find too challenging. DIY inclined if you will. If this were a golfing forum, the tendency would probably be very different.
