Lawn Mower Buyer's Guide

If you dread mowing the lawn, you might need to consider a new machine. Believe it or not, choosing the right lawn mower can make a significant difference in your experience. You should take into consideration the size of your yard and how much time and effort you spend mowing. Most buyers will also be considering their preferred price range. All of these factors will help determine what type of lawn mower will serve you best.

Generally speaking, small yards that are half an acre or less in size can often be easily maintained with a walk-behind mower. On the other hand, larger properties that are more than one acre may need something with more power and durability, like a zero-turn lawn mower. Keep reading to learn more about what these two machines have to offer.

Walk-behind vs. Zero-Turn

One reason that walk-behind lawn mowers are so popular is that they’re relatively simple to use, they’re affordable, and they produce desirable results on small to average size lawns. You’ll even find that more recent models come with all-wheel drive, which means you’ll be able to safely mow over hilly terrain with ease. You can also smoothly maneuver around obstacles without having to get off the machine as you do with other models.

Zero-turn lawn mowers are best when you have a bigger yard to maintain. These models are great for saving time and producing precise cuts. If you have to tackle a variety of obstacles as you mow, you’ll love the maneuverability that these models offer. Whether you need to work your way around flower beds or shrubs, you’ll have no problem. Additionally, there are commercial-grade models that can side-discharge, bag, and mulch your clippings.
