Buying A Lawn Mower For Your Own Lawn

The lawn: for some it's just a weekend chore, others however think it is a great escape. Likes it or not, it must be maintained and that means buying the right lawn mower for the job. What mower you choose depends on the size and density of grass in your lawn and your budget and the features you need.
  Size and density: The size of your lawn, determines the size of the lawnmower, and the nature. Lawnmowers generally fall into two categories reel and rotary. If your lawn is 1,000 square feet (100 square meters) or less in May, you want to choose a manual reel. However, if your lawn is large, consider a riding mower.
  Grass density: You must take into account the thickness of your lawn, when purchasing a lawn mower. It will help you determine the blade and rotary. If your lawn is a soft blade type, not Bermuda or St. Augustine, then consider a reel mower. A plastic blade can be used in gardens where there is no risk of your blade to be damaged by a brick or mowing of large stones.
  Catcher or Thatcher?: If you want to catch the clippings from your lawn, choose one with a rear mounting catch. If not, then a mower Thatcher. It cuts the grass into small pieces, then moves down into the lawn to cover fertile.
  Low maintenance: Most people want to spend more time caring for their lawn as lawn mowers, so here are a couple low-maintenance options to consider when buying a lawn mower .
  Rotary-types are easy to use and refine. They also tend to be inexpensive. Self-propelled mowers are when the engine turns the wheel. These are good tracks. Front-propelled types are easy to use.

When purchasing a lawn mower whether the electrical cord is long enough for your lawn. They tend to be 100 feet (30 m) long. If you opt for a cordless model, make sure to check the battery life.

  When purchasing a lawn mower also keep these considerations in mind. Can you maneuver it? This is important if you have to mow around trees or shrubs. Is it too heavy? Light lawnmowers are easy to handle and manipulate without compromising quality. Is it easy to start the mower? Is it easy to raise or lower the cutting height? Is there a switch to cut the blade?
