With summer here, many of us are investing more time and money in our outdoor spaces. If you’re looking to keep your garden in top condition, a good lawnmower is essential.
Whatever your garden size, experts recommend cutting your lawn at least every week to maintain its condition. Helping you to make the most of your garden, lawnmowers can make light work of the upkeep.
With so many models out there, from petrol and battery to electric, it’s tricky to narrow it down and choose the right one for you.
For one, you’ll also want to consider features such as if the mower has a mulching option, or a sizable grass collection bag – meaning you’ll spend less time emptying cuttings and more time mowing.
There’s also the consideration of garden type. If you have a lawn with slopes or any obstructions, you’ll want a mower that’s manoeuvrable enough to avoid collisions.
Whatever your needs, there’s no denying lawnmowers can be a pricey investment. So we’ve sourced the best deals out there right now, so you can trim your garden for a fraction of the usual cost.
