DH uses "I used to have time to mow the grass, now we've got a baby, I never have time"

Just say "Men's trouble" and leave it at that.

DH uses the excuse that he's allergic to grass. He will start it for me on occasions though.

DH blew up the mower last weekend. Cost him £200 and he still didn't get out of it.

Cut the grass, take a photo from each window, have said photos printed out on life size paper, stick these to the windows, don't let your wife leave the house. This should buy you a few weeks! wink. May not work if the photos were taken on a sunny day and weather reports are all about torrential rain.

'She who must be obeyed'!!
You could always grow a pair?

If you don't want to do it, don't do it.
Get a gardener in, swap roles, slab it.

Or just get on with it.

You're not being asked to paint the Sistine Chapel.

Buy her a spa weekend and astroturf it when she's away?
Seriously - life is too short - can't you find a local teenager and give him £5 a week to run the mower around or have you got acres to cut?
