I suggest eliminating the lawn. They are ecologically unsound. The only natural thing thta approaches a lawn is a grazed pature and thats a far differnt thing. Lawns usually require chemicals such as pesticide and fertalizer, which eventually get into the watercourses and wetlands and cause an abundance of notrogen which leads overly large plant growth and lowering of oxygen. I maintain onlky a very small lawn, about 8 ft by 30 ft and mow it with an electric mower. What a pleasure, plug it in, the noise is about a quarter of a gas job, it doesn't stink, its starts with the flip of a switch! Think about planting native ground cover and native shrubs and minimizing your lawn. Lawns also provide poor habitat for most species of birds, you know the guys who eat the insects, when compared to ground cover. sorry to bug you, its a pet peeve of mine. Anyway, give it a little thought.
