Tips to Pick Mower For Your Lawn

If you rent your home chances are your lawn will be taken care of by your landlord/council. However, if you own your home you arne’t so lucky. Keeping your lawn in good condition can be a very difficult job and although we can show you how to “cut” grass we can help you ‘choose the right tools for the job’.

The two main areas you need to asses when looking for a lawn mower is, your size of lawn and how often you will need to mow the garden/lawn(for our American readers). The wider the cut the less time it will take to cut your lawn although if you have a small garden, say 15ft x 15ft, you aren’t going to spend 2000 on a huge ride on with a 28″ cut and if you have a 1000acre garden (Lucky You!) then buying a small lawnmower will only lead to foul language. So it is very important to get the correct size and here are a few rules that may help you:

Small Garden (upto 15ft x 15ft): 13″ to 16″

Medium Garden (upto 80ft x 80ft): 16″ to 23″

Large Garden (Rich People Size): 31″ to 53″ Ride On

So you no what size but what about the ‘how often you will cut’ variable? Well, its simple. If you cut your grass once per year then buy cheaper. If you are an avid gardener then buy bigger, more expensive Lawnmowers.

You can also get a few optional extras that are really down to taste. You can get a roller lawnmower, which is basically a lawnmower with the two back wheels replaced with a heavy roller. This will give you a nice striped cut(Be careful this requires flat lawn and an up and down pattern when cutting). You can also get lawn mowers that are self propelled or hand propelled. Self propelled mowers only require you to hold down the engagement for them to start moving and hand propelled requires you to push and pull the lever.

One last point to consider is location. If you, for example, stay in the desert then why did you read this far down. If you stay, like us, in Glasgow, where rain is of high probability then you should consider getting a bigger stronger lawnmower.

Create The Ideal Garden

Unfortunately, the majority of gardeners create their gardens bit by bit and so the whole will not be coherent. There is nothing wrong with that but it can lead to your spending more than you needed to and to your garden needing a much higher maintenance than it would otherwise. If all you do as a pastime is gardening, the latter is fine but for the majority of us, gardening is just one of the things we do. A garden that needs maintenance can get out of hand very quickly indeed.

The solution is to call in a landscape gardener or landscaping company. Initially, that might seem rather expensive but in the long run it will actually work out cheaper. The landscaper will listen to what you want from your garden and design it around you. OK, that is what you would try to do but without the depth of knowledge or vision of a professional. As a result of that, you will probably find, a few years down the line that something isn’t really working and you will need to go to the expense of changing it from what you’d set up originally. That will involve extra expense and possibly the loss of the plants you bought originally. With a professionally landscaped garden, it will be many many years before it needs restructuring because the different areas will work together properly from day 1.

Amateurs will make mistakes and plant inappropriate plants. They may be inappropriate because they will never thrive in the place you have planted them or because they are the wrong size when mature. A professional landscaper knows how large a plant will be at maturity and what plants thrive in different conditions and so he or she will not make the same mistakes. That will save you many hours of work on maintenance and a great deal of money on replacing the ‘wrong plants’.
