Do it with a 12" hand mower. Walking will not jar the back and the hills will strengthen the calves
To be honest- I think you should look at full suspension for the next mower. Many years ago I had to maintain an area of grass that was about 5 acres. 1 acre in front of the house was Hand mown and immaculate- The rest was rough cut with a 48" wide ride on mower and that ride on mower was more tiring.
And gardening on that scale is dangerous for the older body. Get the Grandchildren or a local lad that you can controll to do it.
How long was I in the army? Five foot seven.
