Three tips before buying a lawnmower

  • Petrol. A petrol-driven lawnmower is good if you have a large lawn and need to mow the grass for longer periods. Of course, one major disadvantage is that petrol is usually more expensive, and these models need more maintenance than other types.

  • Electricity. There are two types of electric lawnmowers; battery and mains operated. Electric lawnmowers are better for smaller gardens and lawns, and are easier to maintain and start. Since they are best suited for smaller areas, a battery-powered one can make sense as you don’t have to untangle cables. The battery time is usually sufficient for smaller areas as well.

  • Hand-operated. Hand-operated lawnmowers can feel old-fashioned, but they can actually make sense for small areas and rough jobs, as they are light and require very little maintenance. They are also undoubtedly the cheapest option.

Few things can be as difficult as starting your lawn mower. This is especially true if you have any problems with your shoulder or elbow, and have to keep stopping to clear things off the lawn. Some petrol lawnmowers also come with an electric start.

Modern lawn mowers come with lots of different features that can make mowing easier. Adjustable cutting height, half stop and adjustable cutting methods are just a few examples, so it’s worth doing some research into what features your lawn and garden require in order to look and feel as good as possible.

A great feature to look out for is mulching. A mulcher shreds the grass cuttings into an easily biodegradable material that’s good for your lawn and its micro-life. If it doesn't have a mulcher, a grass collector is even more important so you don’t have to collect all the grass cuttings manually afterwards. The cut grass can then just be spread over your no-dig garden.
