Spring Into Lawn Mowing
Ahh. Spring arrives with the beautiful twittering of birds preparing their nests for the unborn. What – can’t hear them? The low rumble of lawn mowers not only drowns out natures’ symphony, but also disturbs skittish wildlife and sleepy neighbors. สล็อตเว็บตรง
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, some older gas-powered lawn mowers produce in one hour as much air pollution as a new car does in 11 hours. Lawn mowers newer than 1996 have to comply to new exhaust emission standards, which is a fantastic place to begin. However, these standards are not yet satisfying for the health of the world.
Gasoline-powered mowers produce a cut that results in greater water loss and increased disease problems in lawns. Although many are now made with 4-stroke engines (much less polluting than 2-stroke engines), they still produce emissions.
There is a returned interest in push mowers due to environmental awareness of gas engine pollution and electricity use. Typically, crowded cities are resulting in smaller lawns, reducing the need for large, heavy mowers. Push mowers are light and easy to operate and, being much smaller, take up less storage space. These mowers are actually quite cheap and many stores are rising to meet the increased consumer interest. We have read that 7-blade models are considered better than 5-blade models.
There are other options to consider. The size of the lawn, the budget, the age of the unit and the quality of cut you want are all important factors to consider.
• The Work of the Lawn Mower – is the lawn mower able to do a good job of the work it is hired to do? Is the lawn able to do a good job of being cut? Of course, if the answer is Yes, then you are paying a decent price for a lawn mower that will do a good job. There are very inexpensive ( Often free) lawn mowers available today.
• Fieldgrades – are the fields treated for weed control, to minimize chemical use? Are the fields composted or mulched? These are both effective, but a grass product is preferable to a chemical product.
• Cuts – what size lawn does the neighbor have, what is the sod size. This is important, when shopping for a lawn mower, to find out what size sod the lawn is growing on. It is very important to know how many “angles” a lawn mower can cut given the size of the lawn.
• Maneuverability – How does the lawn mower move across the lawn? This is a very important question to ask, because if one is poorly made, or breaks down rapidly, you will want to find a different mower.
• Budget – Is the budget worth it? There are a number of mid-priced lawn mowers and sub-mersible mowers that are available. This is an area that you will want to watch for padrone, since you will want to replace the poor quality, old mower if you find a better mower that is spending too much money on fabric, or you have a lot of money to spend on buying a better mower.
• Safety – Little children and pets have been killed by push mowers. Please check the mower for safety if you have this type of yard work.
• Probes -Push mowersdetect a foot or more in front of the center of the wheel. This is an indication that the blades are not sharp enough to cut the grass. You can also have a very sharp blade, but that isn’t necessary to do the job. for example, I have a aerator that saves me a lot of time and energy in my line of business, but it cuts the grass fine as needed.
• Width of the Lawn – The most important area of the lawn is the width, it is wider than the blades, give or take a 1/2 an inch, which will cut the grass in 6 to 8 inches.
• Height of the Lawn – If the blade is 1 1/2 to 3 inches, it will cut the grass about an inch high. If the blades are cut at a different angle than the one above, the grass may be 2 to 3 inches high.
These are just a few areas of lawn, that I have researched, and tested, and found out what works and what doesn’t. Of course this is just my opinion. So it goes without saying, that you should experiment and find out what works for you.
