Hints & Tips
Cutting the lawn can be quite therapeutic. You need to work out where to start so the job is done in the least possible time and then make sure that you’re keeping the lines straight.
And do you cut the fiddly corners first or last? And have you got the cutting height set correctly according to the amount of growth there has been since the last trim?
Just making sure you’re starting from the right place and cutting in the right order will take your mind off the kids’ end of term reports, that funny knocking sound from the car engine, has the cat got fleas (again), Brexit ….
Now if you have a larger lawn the time spent in gardening therapy will be longer, but grass cutting hasn’t got to be more arduous – especially if you have the right machine.
So here are ten top mowers and lawn tractors deigned with the larger lawns in mind, all from world-leading manufacturers and delivered free of charge.
