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.
Do you want to have a great looking and well-trimmed yard but hate the idea of doing all that edging and cutting manually? The answer to your problem may lie in the world of zero turn lawn mowers. Zero turn lawn mowers are riding mowers that can turn right around 180 degrees within in its own body length. It can in reality go right around in a complete 360-degree circle. They were originally designed for industrial applications. Zero turn lawn mowers with their great maneuverability allowed landscape contractors and golf course maintenance folks to cut right up against and around obstacles without ever having to get off the mower and do any trimming.
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.
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.
