If you're planning to cycle, walk, get the bus or use something other than motorised transport and you don't intend using a petrol lawnmower, then great. You can become one of the growing band of eco-friendly gardeners and won't have to budget for petrol.

If anything it will continue to rise. Make sure you include generous allowances to cover fuel and oil.
