Not too long ago I was at a local hardware store and overheard another customer talking to an employee about buying a new lawnmower for her husband. That is when it hit me not everyone knows how to buy a lawn mower. So I decided I was going to write a simple-to-read buying guide that was easy to follow but still informative enough that almost anyone can buy a mower that meets their needs. The first thing that needs to be told in this buying guide is not all lawn mowers are created equal. With this being said you need to understand that a cheap model is likely going to have a hard time cutting grass in a terrain that is not flat.
One reviewer mentioned that he could hear the birds singing above the low sound from his electric lawn mower. The traditional spark plug is not present with this lawn mower and neither is the need to keep an eye on gas levels for refilling at the most inconvenient places. To bag or not to bag that is the question! Yes you may choose to collect lawn clippings in the bag that is included with the electric lawn mowers or to let those clippings naturally mulch and fertilize your lawn. This is both good for the environment as well as your billfold since you wont need to purchase fertilizers that may be unhealthy for humans as well as pets.
In the rear of riding mowers larger wheels are present to help prevent getting stuck in thick grass or in the mud. If you have a comparatively flat and small backyard you do not require a complicated mower. This information alone can actually save you thousands of dollars on purchase and maintenance. However youll need to choose an all wheel riding lawn mower if you own a hilly area. Mowers are available with multiple options for turning and steering. You can opt for the steering wheel or steering stick depending on which is most comfortable for you.
People often think of buying a robotic lawn mower purely for the convenience of not having to mow your own lawn. However mulching is just another one of the many benefits of robotic lawn mowers. Traditional gas or electrically powered mulching lawn mowers require a more powerful engine than standard mowers and therefore use extra energy to create the mulched clippings. Robotic lawn mowers run on rechargeable batteries and therefore offer considerable savings to both the owner and the environment over these other types of mowers. RoboMowers and Lawnbotts are the most popular types of robotic lawn mowers available and both provide good mulch although by different methods.
