Lawnbotts are programmed to cut your lawn frequently such that they just take off the very tips of the grass blades. This means the clippings are the perfect size for a good mulch. LawnBotts boast lithium ion batteries which are even more eco-friendly than lead acid types. RoboMowers follow a more traditional mowing schedule and therefore cut the grass blades when they are longer. Their triple chamber mulching system cuts the longer blades into smaller pieces also providing an effective mulch and natural fertilizer. Mulching is just one of the many benefits provided to owners of robotic lawn mowers.
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.
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.
