Hints & Tips
With the recent sharp showers and early Spring sun, lawns should now be looking their best.
Regular mowing encourages new growth and keeps the grass looking health and light scarifying can also help be teasing out any dead grasses and moss.
So here are ten top mowers to give your lawn a great finish and make them the envy of your friends and neighbours when the barbecue comes out.
The first great little machine is the Mountfield 46B Petrol Rotary Hand Propelled Lawnmower, a machine on special offer from a major manufacturer with a Briggs & Stratton engine – and all for under £200.
With a steel deck and 140 cc engine with throttle control it has an 18 in – 45 cm – cutting width and is recommended for lawns up to 1600 sq metres.
