How To Pick The Perfect Lawn Mower

By Jose Castellanos  |  Lawn Mower Expert
You've already done the difficult stuff. Seeding. Watering. Fertilizing.

Now, the fun begins... harvesting your hard work while getting a sun tan.

There's no reason to outsource your lawn mowing if you purchase the proper equipment in the first place.

Basically, there are three types of lawn mowers designed to efficiently cut grass:

Walk-Behind Mowers

Ideal for small- to mid-sized suburban lawns, walk-behind mowers come in a variety of flavors: reel, electric, cordless or gas-powered.

Whether you're looking for eco-friendliness or comfort and convenience, there's a style to meet your needs.

Riding Mowers

If you've got a larger property or just don't want to walk, a riding lawnmower is a terrific choice. With cutting widths ranging from 26" - 66", you can cut a lot of grass in a little time.

There are three different styles of riding mowers: rear engine riders, lawn, and garden tractors, and zero turn mowers.

Tow-Behind Mowers

Whether you're mowing the fairways of a golf course or taming the wild brambles of an overgrown field, a tow-behind mower is the perfect companion to your existing ATV or tractor.

Towable mowers come in several styles: gang reel mowers, trail mowers and trail cutters.
