Lawn Mowers

April 27, 2010 at 8:58 am Leave a comment

It’s that time of year again.  The time to bust open the tool sheds and dust off the work gloves.  It’s time to cut the grass.  Whether you have a tiny patch of lawn or a 5 acre field, it has to be done.  And preferably, done right.  That means having the right tools.  Those tools include a lawn mower.

As mentioned before, you may only have a small area of grass that needs to be mowed, in which case, you don’t need a very big or expensive mower.  A small push mower without an engine provides no noise and pollution and no hassle of dealing with gas and oil.  They are lightweight and require low maintenance.  If you have  larger yard, I would go with an electric mower because they make the work easier.  All you need to do is recharge the battery when it gets low, which means no mess and no pollution.

Tip: Don’t remove the grass clippings from your lawn.  When you remove the clippings you are removing the nutrients contained in the grass from the lawn.  Grass clippings are the original, slow-release fertilizer for your lawn because they contain nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium that helps your grass as they decompose.  So cut your grass occasionally, and leave the clippings where they are, to help improve the health of your lawn.
