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 that may affect your lawns appearance. 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.

Festival Clean Up! Save and Protect Your Lawn
T in the Park is fast approaching and we all know the aftermath from the summer festivals can leave the campsites in appalling conditions. The grass in the campsites is damaged beyond repair and would leave any gardening enthusiast dismayed at how much damage festivals cause to the affected environment.
But here at Garden Lawnmowers Direct we have some very useful products that ensure your garden always stays healthy and never becomes a bombsite which would be a better word to describe the aftermath of the festival campsites. One of the best kinds of products we offer to ensure your lawn stays healthy and grows properly is a scarifier.
What is scarifying? Scarifying your lawn is the process of removing dead grass or thatch from your lawn to make sure that your lawn during growth is able to shoot up, as the dead grass can cause this to stop your lawn from flourishing. If a lawn is properly scarified then it will improve the image of your lawn a great deal as there will be no dead grass in the lawn to ruin it.
Now that you know what scarifying is, there are only 2 more things you need to know. How is it done and what scarifier to use? The simplest way to scarify a lawn is to use a scarifying machine that will do all the work for you and it is used in the same fashion as a lawnmower. Just start up the machine and run it over the area you want to scarify.
We offer a few different brands that sell scarifiers such as; Cobra, Mountfield and Weibang. Our Cobra range is all electric scarifiers, which are cheaper to buy than petrol scarifiers, and the Weibang range is petrol. Mountfield have both electric and petrol scarifiers which are both very highly rated machines. One of the most popular scarifiers is the Mountfield S38 Petrol Lawn Scarifier. This model comes fitted with sixteen double tipped carbon-steel blades that easily cut into the soil and removes the dead grass. It uses a Briggs & Stratton engine that has an easy start and has a maximum working depth of 20mm. The working width is 38cm and comes equipped with a 45 litre collection bag. This machine makes your life easy when it comes to improving the image of your lawn and costs a reasonable £515.00 which is a lot cheaper compared to other models but with the same high quality.

Is this Heat the Perfect Weather to use your Lawnmower?
The best time to mow a lawn is when the sun is shining. Not only will you get to soak up the sun whilst mowing your lawn, but your lawn will also be at its best thanks to the good weather. This means that when the sun is out, you must take full advantage of it to get your lawn looking brilliant for the summer.
So when is the best time to mow a lawn during the heat? Well, the first thing not to do when you wake up is mow the lawn, as it will still be wet with dew from the night before. Hold off for a few hours until it has dried up and then give it a mow in the evening.
Also how much should a lawn be mowed when the sun it out? A high maintenance grass can require up to 3 mows per week!
This helps keep the moisture in the roots while the blades are long. Also the height of your lawn is important when mowing it. You should only mow up to 1 and a half inches of the lawns current height so that the lawn is not put under stress and grows properly. This will avoid the grasses health decreasing and stop it from turning into a yellowish brown colour in the sun.
Therefore this heatwave we are experiencing is a great time to go out and use your lawnmower, or get a new one if needed. We have plenty of different varieties of lawnmowers to suit you here at Garden Lawnmowers Direct, so have a look on our website and see what deals we have to suit your lawnmower needs this summer!
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. This lawnmower is perfect to give the Wimbledon effect to your lawn and also makes the job easy. It also comes with free delivery to the UK mainland!
Choosing the Perfect Lawnmower
There are many different types, brands and styles of lawnmowers available for people to buy in this current market. But sometimes the difficult question for a gardener is what lawnmower to purchase?
Currently, buying a lawnmower can be just as difficult as deciding what new car to buy, as there is now a different lawnmower for every type of garden. This means the first question that needs to be answered when effectively choosing the correct lawnmower to buy is what you are going to be cutting. Is the lawn large or small? Does the grass need a minimal amount of maintenance or a lot of maintenance? These are 2 massive factors to take into account when considering what type of lawnmower should be bought.
Below is a table that gives a good indication of what size of lawnmower should be used on what size of lawn and what type of propulsion would be recommended to use on the lawn.
|Lawn size:||Suggested cutting width:||Propulsion:|
|Small lawn (area up to half a tennis court)||Up to 19inch (48cm approximately).||Any (push, self-propelled, petrol engine, electric from mains and cordless (battery) electric.|
|Medium sized lawns (area of about one tennis court)||19inch (48cm approximately) to 21inch (53cm approximately).||Usually self-propelled. Petrol. Possibly mains electric.|
|Large lawns (larger than a tennis court)||21inch (53cm approximately) upwards. Consider a ‘professional’ machine.||Self-propelled petrol.|
After deciding what type of lawn you have it is then time to decide what propulsion and type of lawnmower you want. When it comes to deciding on the propulsion of your chosen lawnmower, certain factors will affect your decision. Factors such as; will an electric chord interfere with the cutting of the lawn? Will an electric battery have a long enough life span that would be able to cut your entire lawn? Or is petrol too expensive and not economically viable enough for the amount of cutting being done.
Then you may decide on what type of lawnmower you would prefer to buy; wheeled, rear roller, hover or cylinder. If you care about the finish that is left on the lawn and want a professional striped look, then you may want to decide on getting a lawnmower with a cylinder blade or a real roller lawnmower instead of a wheeled lawnmower. If you have objects in your lawn that can be difficult to manoeuvre around then you may want to opt for a hover mower as they are very easy to move around. Or if you are looking for a very versatile type of lawnmower then a wheeled lawnmower would be best suited for you.
After you have decided on the type, size and propulsion of lawnmower you would like to purchase you will then want to choose a brand of lawnmower. There are many different brands of lawnmowers such as, Bosch, Cub Cadet, Hayter, Honda, Lawnflite, Mountfield, Stiga and many more. This choice is all down to personal preference and how much you are willing to spend for a certain brand. A good recommendation here would be to read other customer reviews on different brands, and to see what brands are highly recommended.
If all of these factors are considered whilst purchasing a lawnmower, and all researched is done correctly, then you should end up with the perfect lawnmower for your garden.
Here at Garden Lawnmowers Direct, we are willing to help you as much as possible when it comes to deciding on the correct lawnmower, and are committed to making sure that you find the perfect lawnmower for your needs. If you have any queries or need further information on choosing the perfect lawnmower, please contact us on 01360 661 526, or email us at email@example.com.
