Few landscaping tools are as useful as the lawnmower. A good lawnmower can instantly refresh your yard, giving your home a well-manicured look. However, not all types of lawnmowers are right for all types of lawns. If you're shopping for a new or used lawnmower in San Jose, consider these tips before visiting your local tool and equipment supplier to make sure you get the right lawnmower for your needs.
Consider Property Size
The size of your yard is one of the most important determining factors when it comes to selecting a lawnmower to rent or buy. If you have a very large yard, a riding mower can help you complete the task more quickly and more comfortably than a traditional push mower. Walk-behind push mowers are ideal for smaller yards where riding lawnmowers can't fit or easily maneuver. Your equipment rental specialist can help you select the best option based on the dimensions of the space you are mowing.
Consider Lawn Topography
The topography of your lawn is also an important factor. For example, if your lawn is very hilly and can accommodate a riding lawnmower, this type of mower is preferred to walking up and down steep hills with a push mower. You will also need to consider the landscaping and hardscaping around your lawn, as a push mower allows you to mow beneath low-hanging trees and around small features such as bird baths and flower beds.
