    Here's why it's important to buy the right mower when you have a large garden

    Spend less time cutting

    In the peak growing months, it’s likely you’ll need to cut your grass at least once per week to maintain a healthy lawn. With such a regular task, being able to cut your lawn in a reasonable time will save you hours over the course of a year.

    Reduce the time spent emptying the grass bag

    When collecting your grass cuttings, one of the more tedious tasks is emptying the grass bag. Larger lawnmowers typically have larger grass bags meaning you don’t need to empty as frequently. You will also find features that help, such as the Honda MicroCut® Twin Blade which produce smaller clippings. Smaller clippings reduce the volume of the grass collected, allowing you to collect more grass before emptying.

    Enjoy your lawn

    Wave goodbye to frustrations with inadequate equipment. With a mower that's up to the task, you can get back to enjoying your lawn care routine instead of it being a chore.

    Save your energy

    When it comes to walk behind lawnmowers there are those that you push, and those that are self-driven by the power of the engine or motor. With a self-driven (or self-propelled) lawnmower, you simply walk behind the mower and guide or steer it.

    Read our short guide on self-propelled drive and how it works.

    If you have large areas of grass to cut, a self-propelled mower is highly recommended and will take much of the strain out of mowing.

    What to look for when buying a lawnmower for a large garden

    Minimum 18" cutting width

    Look for a mower with a cutting width of at least 18"/46cm which will enable you to mow in a reasonable time frame.

    Forget mains electric - choose petrol or cordless

    Petrol engine mowers ensure you can refuel and continue mowing for as long as needed, but consider a cordless mower with interchangeable batteries that can be easily swapped in just a few seconds.

    Quality and warranty ensures a good investment

    This goes with any garden machinery purchase, but it's important to consider what support and spare parts are available for the brand and model you choose. All the brands we sell offer a high quality range of mowers with generous warranties, and we'll be on hand to provide spares and repairs down the line if needed.

    Productivity and ease of use

    Manufacturers are always innovating to develop new features and technologies to improve user friendliness and productivity of their mowers. Here are some features we'd strongly recommend when deciding on a large lawnmower:

    1. Self-propelled drive - A self driven mower means you don't need to physically push it. Simply stand behind the mower and steer. This is highly recommended for larger, heavier mowers.
    2. Large grass bag - We'd recommend at least 50 litres to reduce the time you'll spend emptying.
    3. Optional mulching - With a large lawn, there will be a lot of grass cuttings to collect. With the option to mulch when desired you won't need to collect the clippings and empty your grass bag.
    4. Electric start - If you're decided on a mower with a petrol engine, Electric Start is a feature that removes the need to pull a recoil starter cord each time you wish to start the mower.
    5. Blade brake clutch - Another feature found on petrol mowers, this allows you to step away from the mower whilst the engine continues running by safely disengaging the blades. Honda call this features Roto Stop®.
