Some of the best themed garden and park websites in the uk are making home far more comfortable and enjoyable than ever before. The when your looking for a lawn mower its difficult to know who to turn to. After all, there are so many different types of lawn mowers to choose from. You have electric lawn mowers, petrol mowers, ride on mowers, and just plain old boring push lawn mowers. We will be going through the very best of each and how you can find a bargain amongst them.
Electric lawn mowers
The best electric mowers come with a collection box and a decent extension lead. The best way to look at this is that yes, you are constrained by the length of the power lead but no, it’s not terminal, simply add an extension lead and you’re good to go. Whilst it’s a bit of a pain to get the extension lead out and put it away every single time you want to mow the lawn. Given the summer months when you’re at your busiest in the garden this isn’t always convenient. Unless of course you’re laying a turf! They are also difficult in terms of safety. You have to be ultra careful that you don’t run over the power line or it’ll cause the power to trip and can do a lot of damage to you personally if it’s unfortunate enough.
Petrol lawn mowers
The best thing about petrol lawn mowers is the freedom to just go into the shed and pull out the mower. You simply add petrol and away you go. No leads or ties, just go. This is massively beneficial in terms of time and of course far more convenient than an electric mower. There are a couple of pitfalls. the first one is the are very dangerous because of the power and must be handled with care. The second one is being a petrol engine there is the problem of flooding them and causing problems that are otherwise not associated with electric. it can be a bit of a pain if they won’t just go and the type of crank engine that needs pulling is quite strenuous on the arm, it’s not for the weak.
Ride on lawn mowers
Aren’t ride on lawn mowers the coolest! They are actually really fun, you just get on and ride, they come with electric start engines and as a result its a breeze, but they have their downsides. The main one is you need loads of money to run one. Not because the petrol is expensive, the engine needs maintenance and you need a big storage unit for one, it’s almost like needing an extra place to park your car. That said, if you have a big garden this is the only choice of lawn mower for me.
Push lawn mowers
These aren’t very cool, they also don’t cut all that great, but what a brilliant way to exercise! Personally I would leave this option for another and stick with three of the other options. After cutting the grass you still need to pickup the grass as it doesn’t have an automatic collector.
In summary I love an electric or petrol lawn mower for a medium garden and if I had a big estate then of course the most favourable option would be a big ride on lawn mower.
