Although the presence of a clipping collection box does make them difficult to use under overhanging shrubs it also removes the hassle of having to rake up cuttings after mowing. Rear roller electric lawn mowers have a roller instead of wheels at the rear of the machine. The addition of a roller enables the gardener to create a striped effect in their lawn as the roller flattens the cut grass in front of it. Both four-wheeled and rear-roller electric mowers are ideal for use on rough and uneven ground. The fourth type of electric lawn mower available on the market is the electric cylinder mower. Here rather than using a rotary cutting movement that flails the grass and damaging the blades of grass the cylindrical cutting motion of the blades acts like a pair of shears as they meet the cutting edge of the machine. This creates a clean cut leaving the lawn less prone to dehydration and browning. Cylindrical lawn mowers are used by many professional gardeners and groundskeepers and are ideal for use on flat lawns where a short cut is required. A rear roller can also be attached to cylindrical mowers to achieve the striped lawn effect.
The easiest way to mulch your lawn is to use the very grass clippings produced when you mow. As the clippings decompose they return valuable nutrients to the soil including nitrogen which contributes to a bright green color. The clippings need to be small enough so that they break down quickly and they must be spread evenly throughout your lawn. Mulching will also save you time as you will not need to water or fertilize as often and you will no longer need to rake clippings after mowing. Because the clippings need to be of a small size to mulch your lawn with its own clippings you will need to either mow very frequently or invest in a mulching lawn mower.
You can buy a multitude of accessories especially for the tractor models. You can buy plows for clearing snow in the winter trailers for hauling feed to your livestock or carrying supplies to your garden area and some even have attachments to help plow your garden. There are also attachments that turn your lawn tractor into a leaf collector with grinding abilities to turn leaves into compost. Riding lawnmowers have a larger fuel capacity than regular mowers and have an electric start. They have fully adjustable cutting decks so you can cut taller and heavier grass and undeveloped areas of your property which would bog down and cut out a smaller regular mower.
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.
