A large part of maintaining a luscious lawn is keeping grass at an even and attractive height all season long. There are many different lawn mower options available to homeowners in 2020, and selecting the right equipment for your property is essential. As we like to say at Nuti-Lawn; with a great lawn, comes great responsibility.
Here's a number of equipment options available for mowing your lawn this season.
Manual Lawn Mower
Manual walk-behind lawn mowers are the most common option used by homeowners. Most lawn mowers are self-propelled or manual push, which make this option great for mowing smaller sized lawns.
Remember; spring time requires more frequent cutting since this is when a large percentage of total growth occurs. As a guide, you should aim to mow the lawn every 4 to 7 days during growing season.
Ride-on Lawn Mower
Ride-on lawn mowers are commonly used for large properties. Since they're faster than other options and have a large mowing width, they can help you save a fair amount of time. Ride-on lawn mowers are also a popular choice for lawn mowing service companies.
Rotary Lawn Mower
A rotary lawn mower has a cutting blade that spins horizontally very quickly and uses a vacuum sucking action to stand the grass up and cut the blades of the grass off as it spins. It's very important to ensure the mower blade is sharp; the last thing you want to do is rip and tear your turf.
Reel Lawn Mower
A reel lawn mower has cutting blades that spin vertically, using a scissoring action to cut the blades of grass. A Typical reel has 3 to 7 blades depending on the desired height of cut. They can be a little hard to push, but are better for the environment and are cheaper than gasoline, electric and battery-powered mowers.
A line or string trimmer is commonly used to trim along edges, landscaping, fence lines, and around tree areas where the mower cannot maneuver or cut close enough.
