Lawn mower

Cutting your grass regularly is important if you want a neat and healthy lawn. We recommend getting the mower out twice a week during the summer months, and once a week in spring and autumn. (Check out our Lawn Mowing Tips for more information.)

Of course, lawn mowers - like any piece of technology - sometimes malfunction, and it can be quite alarming when they do. Picture the scene: you're out in the garden, mowing your lawn and enjoying the scent of the freshly-cut grass, when suddenly a cloud of smoke billows out from under the mower.

There are a number of possible reasons why a lawn mower may start blowing smoke, and you will need to diagnose the problem before you can fix it. So let's do some troubleshooting...

So, you've spent a lot of time and energy growing the perfect lawn so your back garden can look like something out of a magazine, great.

A brief history of lawns

Hundreds of years ago, lawns were used as green communal spaces to graze livestock, so it was very rare for a household to have a lawn of its own.

With winter well and truly upon us, many homeowners may be asking themselves if the same lawn care routine they've been carrying out during the earlier parts of the year can be continued into the latter part of the year. 

"Can I still mow the lawn in the winter? Does my lawn need extra fertiliser? How often do I water?" These are all common questions that you are likely to ask yourself as we head into winter. But, as like the previous seasons, winter brings with its own lawn care requirements that you'll need to follow in order to sustain the healthy lawn that you've created throughout the year.

In this article we focus on mowing, providing you with the expert advice and information that you'll need to ensure the health of your lawn is maintained throughout the whole of winter. So, let's get to it!
