Hints & Tips
Many of you will be surprised at how well the grass is still growing, boosted by showers and warm weather.
It still needs cutting, but don’t be tempted to take too much off, thinking it will be the last cut.
Last winter several people were still cutting the lawn in December and started again in February, but remember a sharp frost or snow will leave it looking sad and will also hold back the early Spring growth when it does become warmer.
We know that several of you are still looking to buy a new lawnmower, and for the average lawn these three from Mountfield have been top sellers all summer and are still great buys.
And remember you’ll have a new mower in the shed ready for when the grass really gets a spurt on next Spring.
The Mountfield HP183 Petrol Rotary Hand-Propelled Lawnmower has a 148cc Briggs & Stratton engine and has a 45cm width of cut making it suitable for smaller lawns, say 1600m2.
And as you have to push it by hand it is also easy to nip around garden furniture and between flower beds.
The grass box holds 55 litres and there are five cutting heights from 20mm to 70mm, but don’t use the lowest cutting height until next Spring.
You also receive a free mulch plug worth £20 (but you probably won’t want to use this until next year either.)
It costs £199, £100 off the recommended price, has a two year warranty and free next working day delivery.
This one is exclusive to us and is on sale for a very special price.
The Mountfield SP180 Self-Propelled Petrol Lawn Mower is a great value machine with a Briggs & Stratton 125 cc engine and as it is self-propelled can cover a larger lawn very quickly.
Again cutting heights are from 20mm to 70mm and it has a 55 litre grass box.
The cutting deck is made from steel to give it a long working life.
Next working day delivery is free, there is a two year warranty and it costs £249, £100 off the recommended price.
This final one is for those of you with a large lawn, say up to 2500m2, and has a 51 cm cutting width to cope with a larger lawn quickly.
The Mountfield SP533 Self-propelled Petrol Lawn Mower, on special offer, has a 160cc Mountfield engine designed to start easily and to tackle all manner of grass from rougher areas to smooth, formal lawns.
The grass box holds 60 litres and has a hard top to keep the dust down when mowing in the summer – we know, it seems a long way away!
Cutting heights are from 25mm to 90mm and the deck is powder coated to resist corrosion and give it a longer life.
It costs £319, £130 off the recommended selling price and has a three year warranty and free delivery the next working day.
