Hints & Tips
Lawns have taken a fair bit of abuse over the summer months, what with impromptu cricket games and barbecues.
But just because we are not spending as much time outdoors at this time of year does not mean we should ignore them.
They still need to be trimmed regularly, though not as short as in mid summer. You should aim for a good lush appearance with thick even covering of grass to resist winter frosts and snows.
Here are a couple of mowers which will serve you well all year long, and the first one is an exclusive to MowDirect, especially built for British lawns.

It has five cutting heights and lets you collect, mulch or discharge the cut grass, though exercise caution at this time of the year of you want to mulch and choose a time when the grass is dry.
For added versatility is has a three-in-one design – so you can choose to either mulch, bag or rear-discharge clippings, thereby ensuring you’ll be able to manage short grass, long grass and everything in-between.

The grass box holds 40 litres and has an indicator to show when it needs emptying and it has a steel cutting deck to give it strength and durability. The cutting width is 43cm.
When you are finished just attach a garden hose to the wash port on the deck to clean it out.
