I used to hate mowing my lawn as a kid. I still hated it even when working in landscaping as a teen. I never cut my own grass in CT (left that plebe work to the landscapers I hired!), but finally have come around and love mowing my lawn here in Nashville.
I think what bothered me a lot was the noise and vibration (even with riding mowers...my hands are valuable yo!), but I bought an electric mower and its quiet, powerful, and the battery lasts long enough to cut a half acre!, and little/negligible vibration. I can just listen to music, podcasts, e-books, or nothing and mow my lawn in a very zen like pace.
