Mow The Lawn or Weed Whack First? Which is Right, CNY?
Which came first, the chicken or the egg? Who cares, as long as there's bacon with the eggs. The real question is whether you mow the lawn or weed whack first.
Depends on who you ask.
At our house, Dave mows first and then weed whacks. (If we're being honest, sometimes he weed whacks DAYS afterwards - yes, it makes me insane.) He takes this approach because you see a big result when you mow, (read: it shuts me up about the lawn.) Also, he hates yard work.
My opinion is that you weed whack first so all those clippings get mowed over by the mower. And also, then there's a chance in hell that both things will be done within the same 72 hour stretch.

Well, turns out I'm right (ha ha ha DAVE!)
