The Benefits of Using A Lawn Mower

Every person dreams of a house with a green lawn which is not only gorgeous but also serves for full relaxation, play and parties in the evenings and on weekends. However, sowing some seeds is not enough for achieving perfection. Proper lawn maintenance is required as well. This is where the lawn mower comes in.

This lawn mower has been commercially available since the middle of the 19th century and has become one of the primary tools which a home owner needs to have at hand. If you are not sure about the benefits from using such a machine, you should certainly read the following article. I will explain why it is best to use such a device. Personally, I have long term experience using lawn mowers as a professional gardener working in California so I know how valuable they are to the pro and to the home owner as well.

The Benefits of Using A Lawn Mower

Beautiful Lawn

When you use a lawn mower for giving your lawn a haircut, the grass will be perfectly even, smooth and green. It will look like a carpet in a cheerful green color which invites you to sit down and relax. I have to say that an evenly cut lawn will add greatly to the aesthetics of your home. You will love the way in which your property looks and the envious way in which your neighbors look at it.

Better Lawn Health

A properly trimmed lawn is above all healthy and this is extremely valuable. When the grass is properly cut with the use of a lawn mower, it has optimal height and develops strong roots. As a result, it will be strong and beautiful in the long term. Besides the risk of weed growth is reduced to the possible minimum. The weeds will simply not get enough nutrients and water to grow.

The risk of pest infestation is also lower when you use a lawn mower. Shorter grass which is not surrounded by weeds is less likely to attract different kinds of bugs which may destroy it and cause damage to property and harm to your family and pets. Without bugs which can harm it, the grass will grow strong, soft and green.

Most modern mowers come with a mulching option. It chops the grass clippings into fine pieces which are discharged directly on the ground. In this way, your lawn gets natural fertilization which helps it grow even healthier.


You should certainly consider the higher level of safety for your loved ones and for you when using a lawn mower.

  • Family Safety

The well maintained lawn has a lower risk of pest infestation. It will not attract pests which can destroy the grass and ones which can harm your family such as ticks and possibly mosquitoes. You will have the peace of mind that your children play safety outdoors and that they are well protected from painful bites which can cause an allergic reaction. The properly maintained lawn eliminates the risk of using pesticides which may have a harmful impact on humans, animals and the environment in general.

  • Your Safety

The modern lawn mowers are designed to provide the highest level of safety during the mowing process. The blade is placed underneath a cutting deck which covers it completely and prevents the direct access to it during operation. Many models come with a special safety key which prevents accidental starting of the engine/motor. The clutch system works to stop the blade from spinning immediately to prevent accidents. All of these features provide for your safety as the operator of the machine and prevent accidental operation by others. It may go without saying, but I feel obliged to point out that the mower is much safer than its basic alternative the scythe.


I can claim with certainty that the lawn mower is the most convenient tool for maintaining your lawn. Here is why.

  • Ease of Use

It is super easy to use and operate the modern mowers. The traditional walk-behind models have to be pushed over the grass in order to get it cut. This is the only thing which you need to do. The self-propelled and riding models are even easier to use because you do not have to exercise any effort. It is now super easy to set the preferred cutting height with the use of a single lever without turning the unit upside down. There are versatile options for clippings collection – bagging, mulching and side discharge. Typically, the three options are available together.

  • Saves You Time and Effort

With an average lawn mower, you can mow an area between 1/4 and 1/2 acre within an hour. Given the features for height adjustment and for clippings collection, the whole task can take you no more than an hour and a half. That way, you will have more time for your family and for your hobbies plus a perfect lawn.

Higher Property Value

A well maintained lawn and no pests posing health and property damage risks will certainly work to boost the value of your property. Furthermore, properties with beautiful lawns are always more attractive to both professional evaluators and buyers. You can actually generate money from using a lawn mower.

A Final Word

Now that you are aware of all the benefits which the mower brings, you will certainly hurry to buy a lawn mower.
