Just Curious - How many women love to work in their yard?

AMG3232February 27, 2014

I'd like to know how many women share my love of working in the yard and using outdoor power equipment. I'm a big fan of Stihl products and use many of them around the yard. I'd like to see if there's a community specifically targeted at women using outdoor power tools.

She doesn't use power equipment, but my wife has scores of trees, hedges, and a large garden. The garden is about 1500 sq. ft, and she uses a Troy Cultivator plus to weed it.

I have never met a woman that loves to work in the yard, or cook, or, Oh never mind, the list is too long! LOL

I f I had half the interest, knowledge and energy toward yard work and cooking/cleaning I would be unreal. I feel it balances as we share and work our best suited areas. Her Grandparents/Parents taught her well.

I like power equipment, but don't use a mower due to grass allergies. I use a tractor, mostly to move dirt, manure, and mulch for gardens, and a heavy duty weed whizzer that has a couple of blades as well as a string trimmer. In general I do smaller yard and garden jobs with hand tools since I like the quiet of my rural area and would rather listen to birds than have to wear ear protection.
