Assess the Lawn

When you need to cover a wider area, you may want to consider a riding mower. These save time and can decrease the amount of effort that goes into maintaining the lawn. Push mowers are more ideal for smaller lawns, though you may also want a zero-turn mower to allow you to get around tight spaces.

Fuel Source

A reel mower is often the most versatile option for homeowners, but they may not be a good option if you have a lot of grass to get through. In that case, you may opt for a more that is either electric or gas powered. Electric mowers require less maintenance while gas options can handle heavy duty lawns and projects.

Mulch vs. Bag

Many of the lawn mowers you see, like ones use by companies like Tri-County Turf, will have bags attaches to collect clippings, but there are options that mulch clippings so that they can act as fertilizer for the lawn, much like synthetic lawn products thousand oaks residents use. Basic mowers will simply expel clippings back onto the lawn and they will need to be cleaned or composted.

These three considerations for buying a lawn mower can help you narrow down your choices and choose the right mower for your home depending on your needs and preferences. Riding mowers require less work but may not be ideal for small lawns while electrical mowers require less maintenance than gas mowers and may be preferable to you.
