I would definitely say yes. As long as it's a prolonged sort of activity.

I don't formally exercise. I have a job that is physically laborious for four hours a day. My blood sugar stays within the normal range. I test often because I use insulin, so I know what's going on.

Keep active, keep moving, watch your carb intake. Mowing the lawn, hopefully for an hour or more should help. If you don't keep at it for that long, take a walk. As long as you keep moving, your muscles will use up any excess glucose running round in your bloodstream.
