We all love the smell of freshly cut grass but getting that perfectly manicured lawn can be a lot of hard work if you don’t have the right tool for the job. Whether you have a tidy little front lawn that needs special care or you want to tackle that big back yard in time for summer, we’ll help you choose a lawnmower that’s a cut above the rest.
Before your green fingers start tingling you’ll need to consider a few things when choosing the perfect mower.
There are a few of different fuel types available, with options that will suit all sizes of garden and storage space.
A rotary lawnmower is the classic option for all proud garden owners out there. These models use a horizontal disc and blades underneath that can cut nearly any type of grass, even if it is long and overgrown.
They’re great if your lawn is on a slope with some models having powered wheels to make it much easier to push. You can choose from lots of electric and petrol models depending on what fuel type is best for you. All you need to worry about is the ideal place to set your new garden furniture.
If you want to glide across your lawn on a soft cushion of air then a hover lawnmower is just what you need. These models are light and easy to move around because it’s raised off the ground with air, which is great if you’re in a rush to tidy the garden ready for that fun BBQ party. They’re great for uneven surfaces and odd shaped lawns but work best when cutting short and dry grass. So, it will be easy to keep your lawn ship shape all summer long.

There’s two really important things to look at with the dimensions of your mower.
There are lots of lawnmowers that have grass collection boxes available to make your gardening adventure run smoothly. These collection boxes are fitted to the back of the machine to catch any clippings straight after cutting. Keep an eye out for models that have a window in the box, so you’ll know exactly how much you’ve collected and when you need to top up your compost heap.
