    What are the different types of lawnmower?

    There are several kinds of lawnmowers and depending on the size of your garden, you’ll need a specific type. Here are different lawnmowers you should consider.

    Petrol lawnmower

    This classic offers a lot of power for cutting longer grass as well as wetter lawns while having a large range and long life. The downside is buying and mixing fuel, noise and vibration.

    Main electric lawnmower

    These offer lots of power as a fuel mower but without the smell or hassle. You are limited by a cable which often means the need for an extension lead, external socket and a whole lot of cable moving.

    Battery lawn mower

    This offers a truly mobile mower for hassle-free mobility. These can limit you on power and life before needing a charge.

    Robot lawnmower

    These battery-powered mowers will do the cutting for you. They are best on large open areas only, don’t get into edges and spread rather than collect the grass waste.

    You can also get rotary mowers but for the purposes of this guide, we are focusing on cutting-edge (yes, pun intended, again) tech only.


    Why do I need a lawnmower?

    mowed lawns

    If you want your lawn to look its best, you’ll need a decent mower. The better the mower the faster the job can be done which means you may do it more often for a well-kept garden. Regular cuts equals less physical effort, and less grass mess to clear away.

    Another reason to mow regularly is to clear leaves. Many mowers chew up leaves and either bag them for you as you go, or cut and spread them onto the lawn to work back into the soil. Both great ways to ensure a tidier lawn without the excursion of working a rake or the expense of having to invest in a leaf blower.


    How much should I spend on a lawnmower?

    In the sales, you spend less. So capitalise on the savings and perhaps upgrade on the model to sacrifice the savings. But the short answer is that you spend based on your needs. Generally speaking the higher the price tag, the bigger the mower, which will save you time. But in reality, spending more may be a waste of money by buying you features you might not need.

    However, you might want to splash out a bit more to get a larger blade size that cuts a wider area, meaning fewer laps up and down the garden.

    Another factor is if you want a roller, this will cost more but means you get those brilliant lines left in the lawn to give the cut a really professional finish.

    You can save more money by going for a wired mower over a battery, for example, but you just need to decide if that cable constantly being moved is going to be worth the saving.

    One consideration is the brand. You can get more affordable brands that claim to offer everything more established names do. In reality, you’re often going to get a longer life from an established brand and, especially in the petrol mowers, better performance.
