Lawn mowers for Small Gardens

If you have a small garden you want a mower that will fit in with some or all of the following criteria :

  • Compact, light and easy to store
  • Easy to manoeuvre in tight spaces
  • Quick and easy to set up and put away

Manual / Hand Lawnmowers

With a manual lawnmower you can simply start mowing. There is no filling up with petrol, no unwinding an extension lead across the garden and through the window, you can just push and mow! Hand mowers are very easy to use as long as you are even moderately fit and able, and even a good source of exercise. The new contact free hand mowers are even easier to push.

The great thing about modern manual lawnmowers is that they are almost maintenance free and virtually silent so you can mow your lawn early on a Sunday morning without upsetting the neighbours.

Manual mowers are light enough to be hung up in the shed or garage and so don't take up much space.

Electric Mowers

Electric Lawnmowers take out a lot of the hard work associated with hand mowers. There is generally three types of electric mower : rotary, cylinder and hover.

Electric mowers are fairly maintenance free, and require a lot less looking after than petrol mowers, plus they are generally a lot cheaper too. The only drawback is that you need a ready source of power nearby, and often a long extension lead.

Some people don't like this as it can be a pain having a long cable around when mowing, and also it's not safe to mow when the lawn is wet. A circuit breaker (RCD) should always be used when utilising an electric lawn mower.

Cordless Mowers

Cordless lawnmowers are becoming more and more popular as battery technology allows greater power and longer running times.

Cordless mowers are ideal for small gardens as there is more than enough charge in the battery to complete the lawn.
