A few tips before buying a lawn mower

A landscaped garden is unthinkable without a grassy area, at least in one part. It doesn’t matter if children and pets are playing on your lawn, or if you are going to rest and enjoy it, natural, soft, green areas, everyone adores it. However, in order for the lawn to preserve its beauty and splendor, it takes a lot of effort. For a landscaped lawn, mowing is necessary, say, once a week. The only way to make this job a little easier, faster and to give you relaxation, and not an obligation, is to have adequate mechanization, that is. a suitable lawn mower.

The type of lawn determines the type of mower

There is a wide range of lawn mowers on the market. However, before you decide on any of them, you will need to assess what kind of green space you have. What matters is how much surface you will mow. Then, whether that surface is flat or has bends and slopes. Then whether the surface is uphill / downhill or flat. How often you have to mow the lawn depends on whether it is trampled on, whether something is planted on it or serves as a decoration. This will dictate both its purpose and the way of mowing, ie the height of the grass that you will maintain.

Types of lawn mowers

With every purchase mowerThe seller will, with a lot of questions, narrow down the choice to what you need. But, maybe you can do it yourself if you know what is on offer and what it is intended for. Mowers can be manual, electric, mechanical, battery-powered, robotic or tractor-powered. Hand and electric mowers are recommended for smaller areas (yards or small plots). This is because you control them yourself, so your condition dictates the rhythm of work, or, in the case of electric mowers, the length of the cable and power outlet will affect your movement and mowing. They are light, not very noisy, environmentally friendly.

Hand-held lawn mowers are ideal if your green area has a lot of unevenness, because it is controlled only by you (no motor, no electricity, no batteries). If you need a lawn mower for a larger lawn, it is better to use motorized or battery-powered mowers. They will not restrict your movement, only the mowing time. The simplest and most appreciative to use are robotic lawn mowers, but their expansion on the market has not yet occurred (perhaps due to the price, they cost between 170,000 and 180,000 dinars). Tractor lawn mowers are used for extremely large areas (sports facilitiesagricultural goods).

The most important components of a lawn mower

The better the performance of the lawn mower, the longer it will last. That is why it is important to take a good look at what you are buying and to know what you should pay attention to. Lawn mower blades should be tailored to your lawn and purpose. Then the wheels on the mower should be bigger (rear wheels) and have bearings. Then the housing should be well protected. Mowers should change the oil regularly, but also make sure that the oil does not spill on other parts of the mower.

The handles must suit us and be adjusted to our needs, so that we can perform mowing adequately. When buying a lawn mower, pay attention to the warranty, which should be valid for at least 2 years.
