Get your Garden Ready for the Start of the Season 

The start of August see’s the beginning of the football season. Both the Scottish and English leagues commence in early August meaning that this is a vital time for the football clubs to make their pitches perfect. Here at Garden Lawnmowers Direct, we feel that this is a perfect time for you to get your garden in a perfect condition as well!

Maintaining grass to the same standard as professional football clubs is an extremely difficult task. One way that clubs make their pitches look so fantastic is that they create a stripe effect on the grass by using roller mowers. To help give your lawn that desired striped effect, we have a great selection of roller mowers at fantastic prices! That way you won’t have the cost of running a professional football pitch, but will have the same quality.

As well as giving your lawn a striped look a rear roller mower will also help flatten out any bumps and divots . They also make life easier when cutting grass right up to the lawns edge.

Below is a link to our roller lawnmowers, which will give your lawn a professional striped appearance.


The above link shows all rear roller mowers available from £110 and manufacturers such as; Cobra, Cub Cadet, Flymo, Hayter, Honda, Lawnflite, Masport, McCulloch, Mountfield and Weibang.

For more information on these products, phone us on 01360 660 688.

Having a Lawn like Wimbledon

This week introduced the beginning of Wimbledon 2015.  Throughout this time of the tennis season, many people become tennis addicts and try their best to get into the Wimbledon spirit.

Here at Garden Lawnmowers Direct, we are also getting into the Wimbledon spirit by giving you advice on what mower to use, to transform your lawn from a typical lawn to a lawn that could compete with the high standards of a Wimbledon tennis court.

There are many different lawn mowers that will be able to give you a stripe on your lawn that will give your lawn a professional look. The main component of a lawnmower that will give your lawn that stripped effect is the roller which flattens and compacts the lawn in separate direction creating the desired effect.

One highly recommended lawnmower for this job would be the Hayter Harrier 56 auto drive lawnmower. This is a very large rear roller pedestrian lawnmower and has a 22” cutting width. This combined with the height adjustment lever and variety of ground speed allows users to cut at their own pace and let them choose the perfect height of their lawn which will help make it look exactly how they want.

The Hayter Harrier 56 lawnmower is the largest lawnmower in the Hayter range and costs only £1,128.00 and is the lawnmowers  to give the Wimbledon effect to your lawn and also makes the job easy. It also comes with free delivery to the UK mainland!
