What Are Some of Your Lawn Mower Options if You Have a Small Yard?

Posted on

Even if you have a small yard, you still have to worry about lawn maintenance. This includes cutting the grass. If you are interested in cutting your own grass instead of hiring someone for the job, then you're going to need to purchase a lawn mower, if you don't already have one. If it's your first time buying a lawn mower, you could be wondering if there is any specific advice that you should follow as someone who doesn't have a large property to take care of.

These are some of your lawn mower options. 

Electric Push Mower

One option that works well for many people with smaller yards is an electric push lawn mower. There are corded options, as well as battery-powered ones. This is typically only a good option for very small yards, but if you do happen to have a very small yard, it could be a good option. This is because corded electric push mowers are typically more affordable than other types of mowers, and you don't have to worry about charging a battery. If you don't want to worry about a cord, then you can choose an electric push mower that has a battery. Any type of electric mower can be a more environmentally friendly and quiet option than a gas-powered push mower.

Gas-Powered Push Mower

A gas-powered push mower is a good choice for many people who have smaller yards. There are regular gas-powered push mowers that you have to push yourself, and there are also gas-powered self-propelled mowers. These are a good choice if you don't want to do as much physical work when cutting your grass since the self-propelled push mower will do the majority of the work. You do have to purchase gas for your push mower if you choose a gas-powered model, but many people find that gas-powered push mowers are more powerful than electric push mowers. This can be a good idea if you have thick grass.

Small Ride-On Lawn Mower

Although many people find that a push lawn mower works just fine for their smaller yard, some people prefer a ride-on mower. After all, it's much less physical work to use a ride-on lawn mower. If you do choose to go with this option, you will want to choose a smaller mower with a shorter deck. Then, you can be sure that you can maneuver your mower around your small lawn easily. Plus, you will probably find that a smaller ride-on mower is much more affordable, too.
