There's almost nothing better than stepping outside to the smell of fresh cut grass. It almost seems as if it makes the birds chirp, the sun shine and time just slows down for you. But, a perfect lawn isn't easy to come by - it takes some serious sweat (but hopefully no tears).
Do you have some patchy dead spots on your lawn? We get that. There are some ways to fix these problems to make your lawn look new again.
Have you ever wondered how to cut your grass like a pro? Picking out the right lawn mower can be a bit daunting. With so many options to choose from - we thought we'd give you some tips.
Pros: Gas engine makes it very powerful.
Cons: Not ideal for larger yards as you'll have to push this machine.
Pros: The drivetrain will push the mower forward, so they're good on any terrain including hills.
Cons: Not as nimble, making them hard to use around trees or flower beds.
Options: Bagged lawn mowers collect cut grass for easy distribution (whether you distribute throughout your yard, into a yard waste bin or in a compost pile). Bagless mowers leave cut grass behind, which will decompose to provide fertilization to the lawn. With a bagless mower, the lawn tends to be a little messier.
Pros: Comfortable and easy. Most can handle gentle slopes quickly and efficiently.
Cons: Slower than a lawn tractor on large lawns. Require more storage space.
Options: Zero Turn Mowers pivot instead of turn, making them able to turn on a dime. This makes it easier to get close to shrubs, trees and and other lawn obstacles.
Pros: Can handle most terrains and very large yards. Many lawn tractors can also handle snowplow blades or work carts.
Cons: Requires a lot of space, gas and upkeep. Typically more expensive.
