Choosing Your Lawn Mower with Care

As part of your lawn care program, the mower is an integral piece of equipment. Every homeowner blessed with a nice grassy yard is also cursed to mow it every so often, unless you decide to spend money hiring someone to do it that is. Assuming that you’re unwilling to part with your money, you’ll eventually have to buy a lawn mower to care for your expanse of turf. You haven’t shown any loving care towards your lawn mower, and now it sits rusting in your back yard, because you’re too embarrassed to have anyone see it in your front yard. It’s time for change. Some of the decisions you face include the cutting height of the mower itself. Three inches is ideal for healthy grass, although that may seem too high for some and is a matter of personal preference. The major decision is whether to go with a gas-powered mower or a manual one. If you’re environmentally minded in your lawn care, a manual mower is the best choice, especially if you have a small plot with few square yards to tend to.

Gas vs. Electric Powered Lawn Care Mower

It’s clean and releases no pollutants, because it’s human-powered. By the same token, it forces you to expend more physical effort, although if you’re not getting enough exercise you can look at it as a side-benefit. A gas powered mower is far more convenient of course and requires less work, so as long as you don’t mind the noise and possible contribution to global warming and fuel costs, then you should go with a gas-powered mower. In fact, if you have an extremely large yard that’s too big for either option, consider a ride lawn mower. Who doesn’t secretly want to tool around their yard on one of those?

Another option, which is considerably more fun than the others listed, is getting a robotic lawn mower to care for your grass. If you can’t be bothered to do it yourself, let a machine do everything for you. There are a number of robotic mowers like the Robotic Mower, which uses electricity to charge its batteries, and there are even solar-powered models as well. These are somewhat new to users, but have rapidly become very popular.  No matter what model you choose, just make sure that you don’t forget to water your lawn or there won’t be much mowing to do.
