Spring is here and it is time to consider the tasks that the season calls for that you have been able to get out of doing all winter, like lawn care. Is this the year when you need to consider replacing that old lawn mower? If so we have a few tips to help you find the right one for your lawn.
When purchasing a lawn mower there are some things to consider that you need to take the time to think about before you go out to your local dealer and just pick one up. Many people buy a lawn mower without taking into consideration if it is the right once thus making things frustrating when having to keep up maintenance on the lawn. For instance, how big is your lawn? What type of lawn do you have? Is the grass of a course nature or is it softer? Will you need a lot more power for a yard that has hills or inclines? Would a push mower do the trick or do you need to consider a riding lawn mower? These are all questions you need to ask yourself before you buy.
A lawn type is a huge consideration these days. More often then not people are finding that the type of grass installed in their yard isn’t always your basic run-of-the-mill grass. Lawns with courser grasses will require a stronger horse power lawn mower. Sure you can use the smaller cheaper version but chances are you will also be replacing that lawn mower next year.
Does your lawn incline or have small hills. If you have a lawn that inclines you will need a lawn mower with some horse power so that mowing it isn’t a task that requires a weightlifting session before hand. In the hot sun, having to shove your lawn mower up an incline can become very frustrating and you may end up doing more work then you have to. Buy the right power lawn mower for your lawn landscape.
Finally get some expert advice. Most local retailers know the equipment they sell so don’t be afraid to ask questions. A lawn mower is not a cheap purchase so make sure that you make the right choice, it will save you time, money and work in the long run.
