i tried a push-mower for a year or two as well. It just didn't get the weeds - they would pop right back up. I have just a small city lot and I don't care about making the back yard "presentable", but I try to keep my front yard looking OK to avoid neighbor conflicts. I've also used an electric mower (bought one with the house 20+ years ago). It worked fine but dragging the cord around was a PAIN. Can't tell you how many times I nicked the cord with the mower! When it finally died, I went back to gas. I haven't mowed yet this year (refuse to mow in April!). In an average year, I'll mow about every other week in June and early July and less than that in the hot/dry late July and August weather. I never water my grass.

So....in the end, I guess what I'm saying is: I've tried different mowers and have just decided that gas works best for me. I just try to stretch the time between mowings as much as I can get away with.
