Hire a neighborhood kid to mow your lawn.

Not around here (New England). The kids just don't want to work. The last quote I got from a "pro" was $70 to do my lawn which I can do with a propelled mower in an hour and a half. So that's about $50 and hour, considerably over the minimum wage.

Depending on the size of the yard and how much you're willing to spend, this dictates what mower to get. For up to 1/2 acre, a regular push mower is fine (with self propelled drive) Craftsman, Lawn Boy or Snapper with a 22" cut. I prefer a mulching blade, not much of a clean up and you don't have to worry about getting rid of the clippings. For larger yards a rider or walk behind works well. 42 - 48" cut. Troy Built, John Deere ect. Regardless of what mower you get, proper maintenance is key to keeping the mower running. Check the oil before you cut, change it when necessary; tune ups at least once a season, and keeping the blades sharpened. I've had my Craftsman for 6 years and it starts every time. If and when it dies, I'll buy another, for me its reliable, I cut my grass on average every 4 days.

I love my Toro Super Recycler, the personal pace works very well, this one has the aluminum deck. If you lawn is really small there is a push only version.

You can't go wrong with Scag® Power Equipment. A bit pricey and wears like iron with just a little maintenance.
