If you have a garden and you have a lawn, then you need a lawnmower, but there are plenty of different options. So where do you start?
Well, you’re going to need to choose between electric or petrol, and each of these will have their own benefits. Electric lawnmowers are not necessarily the most powerful, but they don’t need to be, especially if you have a relatively small lawn. You can now buy cordless and corded electrical lawnmowers and they’ll certainly do the job if you have a basic lawn.
For something a bit larger, petrol mowers can ideal. These tend to stand the test of time, and they usually have fewer problems. The only downside is that you may have to spend a good few minutes kick-starting your lawnmower into life and it’s important to start it up regularly to keep the engine running smoothly.
Petrol lawnmowers tend to be slightly more expensive, and you obviously have to make sure you’re keeping a good supply of petrol. Make sure you do your homework before you buy a lawnmower, because it should be an investment that’s designed to perform well for at least several years.
