Lawnmowers come in many shapes and sizes. They can be self-propelled, battery powered, gas driven or manually operated. Many different designs have been developed to suit the consumer’s needs. Before choosing a lawnmower to suit your needs, you need to take into consideration many aspects of your lawn and garden. For example, the size - if the area is small, you need a walk-behind lawn mower, if you are covering a larger area, you may consider a ride-on mower. Grass density is another thing that you may need to consider. Knowing the answers to information like this will assist you in deciding on the blade size and rotation of the mower. If you are on a budget, lawn mowers, like other consumer gadgets, come in varying price ranges. Take into consideration the fuel and maintenance costs that may come with some lawnmowers. Ask yourself a few things like whether it’s an eco-friendly mower you’re after, and check your neighbourhood restrictions, as some engine types may not be acceptable in your locality.

Once you’ve got the answers to the questions above, consider which features will suit your needs;

  1. Self-Propelled or Push? There will be minimal effort when it comes to self-propelled. Push mowers on the other hand are not complex and are most cost effective. But the choice will depend on area; if you are maintaining a large area with hills; self-propelled mowers will be the right fit.
  2. Bag Type? Will you go for the rear bag or the side bag? Based on product testing, the ones with rear bags are considered better. But if you will just blow off the cut grass on the side of the mower, the side bag mower will be okay.
  3. Special Features? Look for as many features as your budget will allow. If your budget is low, consider the most basic feature, like a lawnmower that can cut the grass in three ways. It should mulch, bag and discharge on its side.

Choosing the correct lawnmower for the job can make developing your perfect garden simple, and more importantly, non time consuming. Everybody loves the smell of freshly cut grass wafting through the air on a warm summer's day! Don’t you? Get cutting now with Sunlite Hardware.
