A Guide to Lawn Mower History A lot has changed since the 1800s. That goes the same for the world of lawn mowers. Compared to their slow creation the types and models of lawn mowers available today is simply overwhelming. In this article well talk about the history of lawn mowers starting with their humble beginnings moving forward to their mainstream popularity. The First Reel Lawn Mowers In 1830 Edwin Budding of Gloucestershire England was credited with inventing the first mechanical mowing machine. While working in a textile mill Budding noticed a machine that was used to cut velvet - a material with properties very similar to grass.
On most petrol lawn mowers the operator is able to set the cutting height to one that he chooses - usually between 20mm and 80mm for most home garden mowers. Cutting grass to different heights during the cutting season can contribute to the health of your lawn so careful attention to a mowers cutting heights is important. Finally we need to do something with the grass cuttings. Different mowers offer different options but all will offer a grass collection box of some description. This box sits on the back of the mower and collects the cut grass compacting it as it does. Some mowers also offer a discharge option where the cuttings are discharges from the mower to the rear but also sometimes to the side. Finally there is mulching. Mulching is where the mower cuts the grass cuttings down into really small bits and then reintroduces them to the lawn. These small bits of grass are then broken down by micro-organisms in the soil which help then to fertilize the soil. So that it. Thats how petrol lawn mowers work. Of course there is probably a little bit more in the detail but as a general rundown thats your ticket.
