I've been very interested in using a scythe for my lawn (specifically an austrian style scythe, if it matters). I don't have too much grass, and its a bit far from the garage so having to pull out the mower and use gas is a bit annoying. A scythe seems much better for the environment and like a nice little workout. What I'm really wondering about is if its possible to use it in smaller spaces? For example, one of my raised beds is next to a fence, maybe 2 feet of space in between them. Could a scythe cut there, and up against the fence? Or would I have to pull out a weedwacker/sickle? Switching completely away from electric and gas tools seems like an interesting endeavor to take on, but I'm just not sure how efficient it'll be.
