Get the most picturesque grass on the block by using a lawn mower built for the job. We have one for every type of yard and terrain.

Consider Lawn Size, Obstacles & Your Limits

  • Consult our lawn mower guide and match the size of your lawn with a mower that's cut out for the work.
  • Consider the landscape of your lawn. If you have obstacles like trees, large exposed roots, stones, or winding gardens, look for extra features (like self-propelled front wheel drive) that can make navigating around these objects easier.
  • Think about your physical capabilities. During spring and summer, grass and sod can grow rapidly and might require cutting more than once a week, depending on the weather.
  • Which Lawn Mower is Perfect for You?

    • Black reel lawn mower

      Reel Lawn Mower

      These are ideal for small lawns, like those under 5000 square feet. Easy to manoeuvre around small trees and shrubs, they produce little noise and zero emissions.
    • Green and black Greenworks corded electric lawn mower

      Electric Lawn Mower

      Get a comparable cut to gas lawn mowers, but with next to no emissions or noise. Electric lawn mowers require little effort and come with low maintenance and operating costs. They're available in either corded (up to 1/4 acre lawn) or battery-powered (up to 1/3 acre lawns) models.
    • Black and orange Husqvarna gas lawn mower

      Gas Lawn Mower

      Gas lawn mowers are excellent on a wide variety of terrains and landscapes, from flat lawns with obstacles to hilly yards with slopes and valleys, allowing you to cover a big area with a full tank of gas. They're easy to maintain and repair and come with a long and reliable lifespan. They also come with many additional features, such as mulching attachments.
    • Green, yellow and black John Deere riding lawn mower

      Lawn Tractor

      If you've got a yard bigger than 1/2 an acre, lawn tractors are perfect for handling big terrain and obstacles. Choose between manual, automatic, or hydrostatic transmissions, making sure to find the deck size, engine horsepower, displacement and torque that's right for the size and terrain of your yard. If you need to make small, tight turns, zero-turn models allow for a sharper turn radius. You can also add attachments for other tasks, like leaf and clipping bags, hauling landscape materials, spreading seed, plowing snow, and more.

    Landscape & Lawn Mower Tips & Tricks

  • Know When to Mow: Aim for the early morning or early evening when the full heat of the sun is less and your grass won’t be as stressed.
  • Adjust the Height For Your Cut Grass: Set your mower’s blades between 1 to 4 inches, depending on the season, condition of your lawn, and species of grass. If you have a putting green, set your blades to 1/2 to 1 in.
  • Try to Avoid Moisture and Rain: It’s better to use your mower on a dry lawn so wet grass doesn’t clump up the machine.
  • Switch Up Your Mowing Path: Alternate directions on a weekly basis to avoid ruts on the lawn and to encourage uniform growth.
  • Keep Sharp Blades: Get the blades sharpened at the start of every season so they’re performing optimally, and replace them every 2 to 3 years.
  • Use Your Clippings: Mulch clippings and leaves to give your lawn an extra boost of nutrients, or collect them in a detachable bag and start a compost pile.
  • Get a Self-Propelled Mower for More Mobility: If your grass is fairly flat and has multiple obstacles, a self-propelled lawn mower can make the job much easier.
  • Get More Traction with Power-Assisted Drive: If your lawn has bumpy or hilly terrain, a mower with rear wheel drive provides proper traction.
  • Use Your Safety Handle: When the safety handle is released, the lawn mower automatically shuts off.
  • Let Accessibility Decide Between Push Button vs. Pull Cord: Consider your physical abilities when it comes to how your lawn mower needs to be started.
  • Use Caution When Handling Mower Blade: Only remove grass clumps from the blade when the lawn mower is turned off and cut off from its power source. Use a stick or broom handle instead of your hand in case the blades spring free unexpectedly.
