After many years of pinching pennies and saving where you could, you have finally put aside enough money to afford a home away from the city in the suburbs. You have moved in and have everything looking swell, but look outside and suddenly remember that you are now responsible for your own lawn care and you do now own a lawn mower.
When you get to the hardware store you realize that there may be more to buying the right lawn mower than you expected. There are several mowers available.
If you have a small lawn, you may find that a push mower that has no power other than what you supply does great. These lawn mowers have the advantage of actually cutting the lawn with a scissor action and help to avoid the brown tips at the ends of the blades of grass. One disadvantage is that mowing must be done regularly as these mowers do not do well in tall grass.
For a larger lawn, you may want to add power to that lawn mower. One of the easiest ways to do that is to add a gasoline motor. Gasoline mowers take less of your energy and are excellent at cutting grass. If taken care of, they are dependable for a long time.
