    The hard work is done for you

    Because robotic models can run themselves, you’ll never have to spend another second pushing the mower again. Just tell it where you want it to go, and you can sit back and watch as the lawn is taken care of without you having to lift a finger.

    No bin

    Some mowers don’t have a bin, which means you won’t have to keep emptying piles of cut grass every few minutes. Instead, any trimmings end up back on the lawn, acting as a natural fertiliser to keep it healthy.

    Smart app

    Robotic mowers come with a handy app available. This means you can start and stop them, and get updates on your mower, all from a smartphone – you’ll never have to leave your deckchair again.

    Multiple start points

    Some models can even be set to have multiple starting points, so if you have different areas of lawn that need seeing to, nothing will get in the way of a relaxing afternoon.

    Best for patios

    Prefer a paved garden over grass? We’ve got plenty of power washers that’ll keep your patio spick and span. Check out our favourites that love to get stuck in with the cleaning.

    Multiple power settings

    Power washers come with different settings to suit different tasks. Cleaning wooden decking usually doesn’t need a high pressure, but if you’re tackling a driveway, you’ll need to turn things up a notch. So make sure you pick a model that has all the settings for your jobs.

    Plug and clean detergent

    Using plug and clean detergent can shave off a bit of time, and even make sure your chores won’t need doing as often. That’s because not only is it ready to go straight away, but some of Karcher’s detergents even stop surfaces getting dirty again for a while.

    Patio cleaner attachment

    Tackling the driveway? Patio cleaner attachments are designed for just that job, cleaning up to 5 times faster than a standard lance. And best of all, there won’t be any splashback – no need to grab a towel once you’re done.

    Best for large lawns

    If you’ve got a large garden that’s your pride and joy, you’ll want a mower that’ll always be up to the job. Our favourites will save you time and effort, so you can go back to admiring your handiwork in no time.

    Large bins

    Models with a large bin (30+ litres) are a great option. The bigger the bin, the less you’ll need to empty it, and the quicker you’ll be done – that refreshing drink will be in your hands in no time.

    Cordless models

    Sick of hooking up endless extension cables? A cordless mower means you can reach every blade of grass without worrying about getting tangled up. Just remember to charge up the battery before you start.

    Mulching plug

    If you want to give Mother Nature a helping hand, a mulching plug blocks the bin, so any cuttings get sprinkled back onto your lawn as a natural fertiliser. Not only will this help keep your lawn healthy, but you won’t need to make any trips to empty the bin. Win-win, right?

    Best for small or uneven gardens

    The last thing you need to look after a small or uneven garden is a bulky mower that’s going to miss any tight spaces – those patches of longer grass will stick out like a sore thumb. That’s why we’ve picked out our favourite models that’ll have no trouble covering every last groove, bump, and corner.

    Best for creating stripes

    Ever wondered how your lawn can have the same stripes as a football pitch? It’s easier than you think. Stripes are made when light hits rows of grass that have been flattened in different ways, and all you need is a mower with a roller on the back. We’ve picked out 3 models with just that, so you can get your lawn looking cup final-ready in no time.
