Tired of mowing the lawn altogether?
Get a wallaby.
Yeah, you read it right. Those cute little mini-kangaroos from down under can cut your lawn maintenance down to zilch — and they’re already being used for that in the UK!
Seriously, how FUN (note to mention cute) would it be to have a wallaby or 2 hopping around your backyard?
I’m sure my 2 black lab mixes would love them.
We’ve talked a lot around here about greener options to the traditional gas powered mower. But if you still feel like reel mowers, electric reel mowers, electric push mowers, or even an electric riding mower aren’t your particular brand of mulch, I ask you, “why not wallaby?”.
Shea Gunther says, “[It’s] a new trend that’s bound to help.”
Get it? “Bound”. Wallabies. Boing, boing, boing. Clever Shea, very clever.
The prices quoted in the video might be accurate for the UK, but I could only find prices between $1,000 and $2,000 in the US.
Unfortunately none of the sites I found seemed to be updated recently, so your best bet is to try searching around for “exotic pet” dealers.
Still at $1,000 a pop, a wallaby would be a lot cheaper than a new riding mower…and WAY more fun.
Would you consider some lawn labor that is such a high caliber of cuteness?
I think every little step toward living green is an awesome one… but eco-snobbery sucks! My goal is to help newbies learn the most important steps toward living green — individually and collectively. Personally, I strive to have as little impact as possible on Planet Earth while I'm here.
