Hints & Tips
With plenty of vigorous growth in the lawns you can now start to lower the cutting height on your mower.
But remember that the grass needs trimming at least once a week at this time of the year, more if you’re after a lawn to make your neighbours jealous.
Make sure the edges are trimmed as well, as nothing shows off a lawn as much as neat edges.
And if you really want a lawn to look kits best you should consider a mower which leaves a striped finish.
You can only achieve this with a machine with a rear roller and Lawnflite, a long-established British brand has some excellent machines like this.
And the other advantage of a rear roller mower is that you can cut right up to the lawn edges without fear of it toppling into the plants.
This first one, the Lawnflite 18SPR Self-Propelled Petrol Rear-Roller Lawnmower with its 18in wide cut is ideal for lawns around 800m2.
The all important rear roller is split to make turning easier and it has a throttle control so you can increase the revs to help things along on sloping lawns.
The engine is Lawnflite’s own 135cc model, easy to start and there are seven cutting heights right down to 17mm. The grass box holds 60 litres.
Delivered free the next working day with a two-year warranty it is a bargain at only £329, £170 less than the recommended price. Reviews are here.
That machine is exclusive to MowDirect and so is this one, the Lawnflite 20SPR Self-Propelled Petrol Rear-Roller Lawnmower.
This has a 173c engine and a wider width of cut at 20cm making it suitable for lawns up to around 1200m2.
There are seven cutting heights down to 17mm and the grass box, which holds 60 litres has an indicator to show when it is full.
This one costs £399, a full £200 off the recommended price and we deliver it free within seven days with a two-year warranty.
And the final one, another exclusive machine, is the Lawnflite 20SPR-ES Self-Propelled Petrol Rear-Roller Lawnmower with Electric Start.
This is similar to the previous mower but it has, as the name implies, an electric start, so just turn the key and away you go.
It costs £449, £250 off the recommended price. We deliver it free within seven days and it has a two-year warranty.
