Considering Buying a Cordless Electric Mower ?

When most people think of lawn mowers, they think of loud machines that produce smelly clouds of exhaust. This is not necessarily true anymore. There are many alternatives to the old gas power lawn mowers of the past. A cordless electric lawn mower is a great choice for your next lawn mower.

There are a number of drawbacks to the old style of gas powered lawn mowers. For one thing, they are loud. In fact, many of them are very loud. This makes it inconvenient to use them early in the morning before the hottest part of the day. These machines also create pollution and exhaust. They also require that you fill them with gas and oil often, as well as perform a lot of regular maintenance in order to keep them running properly. All of this can add up to be quite a hassle for the user.

Cordless electric mowers can provide you with a great alternative to gas powered mowers. There are many benefits to using a cordless electric lawn mower. One benefit is that an electric lawn mower costs less to operate. Another one of these benefits is the noise. A cordless electric mower is much quieter than a gas lawn mower. This allows you to mow the lawn whenever you want without the fear of waking up the neighbors. Cordless electric mowers also require very little maintenance. This means that you can spend your time actually mowing the lawn instead of spending time working on your lawn mower before getting to mow the lawn. You will not have to fill the mower with gas and oil. It will also not produce any toxic emissions at all. You can just charge the mower up and be ready to go in no time. While an electric mower will not be as powerful as a gas mower, it will definitely have enough power to cut your lawn effectively and efficiently.

There are a few downsides to an electric mower to keep in mind if you are looking into getting this type of mower, though. One downside is that cordless electric lawn mowers are designed for smaller lawns. The usual run time for these types of mowers is about 30 to 60 minutes. This provides you with enough time to mow about one fourth to one third of an acre. Some models, however, let you change out the battery. This allows you to swap out the drained battery for a charged one and then you can keep mowing longer. Another downside is that cordless electric lawn mowers are heavier than gas powered lawn mowers. They are heavier because of their large batteries that supply them with power. This can make mowing up hills a bit more difficult.

A cordless electric lawn mower can be a great alternative to a conventional gasoline powered lawn mower. It is important to know what your needs are if you are looking into buying one of these mowers. Knowing and understanding exactly what your needs are can help you to make the best lawn mower.

Lawn Leveling Tips – How do you Level Lawns

The key to achieving a clean, even placement of a lawn lies in the preparation of the site on which the grass is to grow on: no rubble, no protruding large stones, no holes or crevices on the ground that may twist one’s ankle, hide tiny objects, even creatures, that inadvertently roll onto lawn grass, and will make the task of mowing the lawn difficult.
The first step to level lawns – is to clear the area of unwanted objects like tree stumps and large stones. This is done by digging or by using a Rotavator. If there are weeds or unwanted vegetation growing, a systemic weed killer may be sprayed onto the soil to discourage the further growth of weeds. After clearing, the soil is raked to improve soil structure. This also facilitates the leveling process.
Leveling Lawns
The next step is to do soil patching to further even out the surface area and to create a planting surface that is acceptable to the roots of the plants. This can be done by dragging topsoil from one area of the lawn to the other in order to create an even planting surface. Well-drained, sandy loam makes the best topsoil for a lawn. It should be free draining, but at the same time be able to retain a certain water level that can prevent plants from completely drying out. Sand may also be added to the topsoil to level the soil but it can turn cement-like when dry and can cause soil drainage problems. Used alone, sand is not a good surface to grow grass on.
To achieve a uniform level for the planting area, mark the desired soil height using string that is drawn taught on pegs. These pegs are evenly plotted on the area, creating a uniform grid that will guide the distribution of the soil. Adjust the soil level to the marks indicated by the lines. Repeat the digging, raking and leveling processes until a level surface is achieved. The soil is then firmed down.

Cover the whole area with topsoil, preferably 20-30 cm (8-12 inches) deep. Tread evenly over the ground to test if the soil is evenly firm. Take care not to over-compress so that the soil won’t get compacted or water-logged. No activity should be undertaken on the soil surface within the next 4-6 weeks to allow the soil particles to settle down naturally. Lightly fertilize; water the soil thoroughly a few days before putting the grass in.

If lawn ruts or uneven spots appear after the grass has been allowed to grow, patch the soil with an equal mixture of sand and dry topsoil, evenly spreading the mixture, but not entirely covering up the growing grass underneath. Compost may also be added to the patching soil mix for a richer planting medium.

That should be it, keep an eye on the lawn but over time, this uneven spot should eventually level out. These are the simple steps in lawn leveling, it’s not as difficult as it seems. You can save on professional fees. But more importantly is the fact that you will derive much satisfaction in doing your own lawn leveling

Taking Care of Grass

Many people feel that the grass is always greener on the other side, but what if for you it is literally true? It can be frustrating to look across the street and see your neighbor’s green grass practically glowing in the sunlight. You may be taking care of your grass and wonder what you are doing wrong. There are a few landscaping tips that may help you discover what you can do right.

Taking Care of Grass

Taking Care of Grass

First, when it comes to watering the lawn, less is more. Too much water can cause damage to your lawn. In fact, brown patches on the lawn can be caused by over watering. Most lawns only require approximately 1-1.5 inches of water per week. Over watering can actually leach valuable nutrients from the soil. These nutrients are essential to making your lawn a lush, green color.

Another important tactic for keeping your lawn green is to ensure that you are mowing it properly. Cutting your grass too close to the ground and cutting with a dull blade can both cause problems. For example, ripped grass is more vulnerable to pests.

Pests that can damage your lawn can be divided into two categories – soil inhabitants and thatch inhabitants. Examples of soil inhabitants are mole crickets, white grubs, and billbugs. Examples of thatch inhabitants are spittlebugs, clinch bugs, and sod webworms. It is best to figure out what kind of pest you are dealing with before spending any money on the problem.

Weeds can also deteriorate the beauty of a lawn. It is best to nip a weed problem in the bud before it gets too serious. Weeds can spread quickly throughout your lawn. A liquid spray weed killer would be best to spot treat weeds on a lawn. However, it is important that you read the label and do not purchase a weed killer that will do damage to your grass as well.

Then there is the issue of fertilizer. Most experts recommend using a fertilizer on lawns but they may disagree on how often. The frequency of fertilizer use and what type of fertilizer to use can depend on climate. The best option would be to ask your local lawn care supplier for his or her advice on the matter.

If you are still not satisfied with your lawn after changing your landscaping techniques, then sod is always a possibility. Laying sod takes a little work but it is not difficult. It would require you to rip up your existing lawn to make room for the new one. The process of laying sod generally takes two or three weeks. Sometimes putting your current lawn out of its misery might be the better option than continuing to watch it struggle.

There is obviously hope for even the worst lawns. Changing your lawn for the better is often just a matter of figuring out if you are doing something wrong or if there are other forces at play. It could be a problem with how you are watering your lawn or maybe it is just an unknown pest that has invaded. After some research and some changes, your grass can be among the greenest on the block and you’ll need to get the best lawnmower you can.

Push Reel Lawn Mowers – How can they Help?

The current state of the national economy – the average price of gasoline rates at above $4 a gallon – is enough to prove that “Necessity is the mother of reinvention”. The push reel lawn mower, for example, has smoothed its way out of the history books in the U. S. A. Manually operated, it helps saves not only a few cents on gas, but also provides other and much bigger benefits. The reel mower is a classic of American culture, but it has evolved considerably over time. The current economic situation combined with a new found concern for the environment provide the foundation for a big comeback of the good old fashioned manually operated push reel lawn mower in our yards. Why choose a reel mower?* The most recent incarnation of the push reel lawn mower is lighter, more durable and much easier to handle. * It comes with an array of handy features including grass catchers, sharpening kits and easy-to-adjust cutting heights. * It’s also much quieter than the gas mower. The absence of the infamous buzz may actually enhance your relationship with your neighbors when you mow your lawn early on Sunday mornings, or when they are relaxing at the barbeque grill on a Sunday afternoon. * Not being a gas-guzzler by nature, it’s considerably lighter on the pocket as well. * It doesn’t run on electricity either, so you don’t even have to remember to plug it in. All you’ll need are your hands. Keeping the Blue Planet greenGas mowers belch out pollutants like carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides and hydrocarbons. These are deleterious to human health and don’t do anything kind to the ozone layer, either. The choice of a reel mower has excellent consequences for the movement toward more environmentally friendly practices and products and also results in the raising of awareness. Small things, even lawn mower choice, add up to global effects. We can no longer afford to ignore or undervalue the importance of environment consciousness. There are more down-to-earth consequences of using a push reel mower. Gas mowers leave lawns with jagged-edged grass. These jagged edges render the grass more vulnerable to disease and facilitate the loss of moisture. Reel mowers cut grass cleanly and thus ensure a healthy lawn; when you buy a reel mower, prepare to be astounded by the difference between your lawn and your neighbors’. A mowing a day keeps the doctor awaySome of the advantages of using a push reel lawn mower are much more subtle. The regenerated reel mower is easier to handle than it has been in the past, but you have to get your hands dirty. The extra bit of effort you have to put in means that your lawn-mowing session also doubles up as cardio workout. You will also find yourself enjoying life more with a push reel mower. The psychological satisfaction of the hands-on approach will complement the obvious physical, economic and environmental advantages. Whatever your initial motivation for being interested in a push reel lawn mower, you might just end up getting a whole lifestyle experience because of it!

Lawn Mowers

Before deciding which machine is good for you it is advisable to first take a look at the available types of machines in the market. Finding about these machines and what kind of features they have will help you to finalize which one to go for. 1) Type #1 – The first type is the “Push Reel Lawn Mower”. As the name suggests this has to be pushed manually with a handle attached to a cylinder. The cylinder at the bottom rolls on the lawn cutting the lawn blades. The width of the cylinder with blades on it has a width of about 12 inches to 20 inches. This is a manual lawn mower. 2) Type #2 – The second one is called as the “Rotary Lawn Mower”. Unlike a push reel type, this is powered by a gasoline engine, which can generate a power equivalent to 2 to 7 horsepowers. Many manufacturers have even produced electrically powered rotary mowers. The main advantage of an electric one is reduced noise levels while working. But a gas-powered machine produces much more power than an electric one resulting in finer lawn cuts. 3) Type #3 – The third one is a “Riding Lawn Mower”. This machine is largely used when there are large lawn areas to be maintained. If you hate hard work then this lawn mower makes your life much easier, by making it possible to ride on it like a tractor. The quality this machine produces is excellent. A riding machine has several more arrangements to attach additional fixtures such as snow blowers etc. these machines are expensive as compared to the first two types. One very popular riding mower is the zero turning radius, which can work in areas where the landscaping design has lots of smaller areas covered with lawn. This was just a brief introduction of the types of lawn mowers commonly available in the market. Make sure you look for their detailed reviews and rating before you make any final buying decision.
