So you go sideways or up and down? Honestly, lawnmowing was my favorite job earlier in life. Had my Sports Walkman on (went through several of those), just mow and wave to people driving by.

But steep hills, depended on my mood if I wanted to go up and down or side to side.

Darn tooting. You made Canadian "northern" cities, look plumb south.
I live on the 43rd latitude in Canada.

Sideways, starting at the top.

Usually a 2-hour job. My knees aren´t what they used to be, so I try to split it into 2 rounds of work, starting below the house and taking the part above the house the next day.

If no rain is forecast, that is.

Fat chance. Mostly it is a question of finding a window of opportunity between two rainy days, and do it all in one single day.
