New Urban Peasant!

Looks great... How about borrowing your bro's sit-on and doing something really big?!


i guess that if the lawn was a tad too short one could spray the entire lawn with a colour and then mow on top, the cut lawn would go back to green...

looks good

That's really great Jonny. Now can you mow my lawn?

Looks great... you are now officially the Percy Thrower of Alt.Worship... Allotments? Pah!!!

This is SO COOL!!!! I invite you to my home in Richmond, VA to mow one on my lawn! You can stay at my house and have a lovely holiday! LOL!!!!

Andrew Dowsett

fantastic idea - thanks for sharing it : )


Hey There,

Very cool idea you have had there. I'd love to put one of those in my back yard. This reminds me of when I used to mow bocce courts into my yard. It isn't quite as impressive as the labyrinth, but it was still a great deal of fun. Can't wait to try your idea whenever I move out of my flat.

this looks awesome. the place where I serve as art director did a labyrinth this year....but the mowing idea into the grass may be awesome for this summer. thanks for the worship trick




Are you kidding? This is your version of worship? Worship pours out of a life of service to Christ, not out of mowing grass. Get a grip. emissaryx.blogspot.com


Jonny, this looks wicked cool. Thanks for posting it. I will definitely rip this idea off sometime.

Some great looking photo's here. No wonder you're so high in 'Google' ranking for the keyword 'Labyrinth'.

I reckon I might have to do something similar on my blog.

(Only just started it though, getting some good ideas here).

Cheers, Pete.

Thank-you for the nice photos and method descriptions. I found your blog when looking for ideas on how to mow in a labyrinth. The Racine Dominicans (Racine, Wisconsin, USA) have one on their property and I always thought it would be lovely to have one. After reading your blog, I successfully mowed one into my garden, which I can see as I look out the window of my home office. I have re-mowed it once already, which is a bit tricky, but now I am able to enjoy the labyrinth in some way every day. A friend called in today, and she and I walked it together. I am thinking of a summer labyrinth prayer cookout for next month...well, there is just something about a labyrinth - an excellent way to worship indeed!

Does this labyrinth still exist? I would like to bring the Westminster cathedral inerfaith group to walk it. John Woodhouse

Does this labyrinth still exist?


we just mow it in the summer. it's not there at the moment. i am actually not sure if we are going to but if we do it is likely to be for grace in july - so keep an eye on www.freshworship.org
