As the country prepares to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee with a four-day Bank Holiday from the 2nd to the 5th of June, now’s the time to give your garden the royal treatment so you can sit back and enjoy the occasion with family and friends.
How to Choose the Best Lawn Mower for Your Garden
The Right Lawnmower for Smaller Lawns
To get smaller lawns looking regal, lightweight electric lawnmowers such as our award-winning Webb WEER33 Classic electric rotary lawnmower are perfect to grab out of the shed. Crowned ‘Best Buy budget mower’ by BBC Gardeners’ World Magazine, it’s a compact and easy-to-manoeuvre mower to get the job done quickly.
For slightly more challenging lawns, the Webb WEER36 Classic Electric Rotary-mower harnesses a hefty 1600w of electric power and is a great, quiet-running option, particularly if you live in a built-up residential area. It’s also a great way to create a traditional striped finish for your lawn.
For larger lawns, the Webb WEER40 Classic electric rotary mower is driven by a powerful 1800w motor and offers a range-topping 40cm working width. Well equipped to handle tough grass conditions, it will take thick growth in its stride and is an easy way to keep even the wildest of lawns looking great!
The Right Lawnmower for Medium to Large Lawns
You’ll need something a bit more powerful for larger lawns, but still easy to manoeuvre. In this case, buying a petrol lawnmower might be a good choice if you want the job done quickly without the restrictions of cables and power sockets. Sturdy and durable, a petrol lawnmower is a great investment if you look after it correctly.
With cutting width being an important consideration – the bigger the cutting width the fewer times you’ll need to go up and down your lawn – the Webb WER40HPSFX petrol rotary lawnmower and WER410HP classic petrol lawnmower have cutting widths up to 40cm and 41cm respectively.
But, if pushing a heavy mower is a concern, you might want to look at a self-propelled wheeled petrol rotary lawnmower such as the Webb WER410SP. Easy to handle, just push the lever, and away you go, this effort-saving model boasts a compact 41cm working width and does all the hard work for you. It’s an excellent choice for medium-sized lawns, particularly ones with slopes and rough areas to negotiate.
And, for those better placed to handle our typically changeable British weather, why not look at the Webb WERR17SP self-propelled petrol rear roller rotary lawnmower or the Webb WERR17P petrol rear roller rotary lawnmower, which also features the ability to mulch, rear-discharge, or collects.
Defining Lawn Edges With a Line Trimmer
To define your lawn edges and add that finishing touch, use lawn edging shears or a powered lawn edging tool such as the Webb Classic 450W 25cm (10”) Line trimmer and Edger. Featuring a telescopic handle with an adjustable cutter-head, you can effortlessly achieve crisp and tidy edges, without even having to bend.
Lastly, to get your hedges looking regal and ready to display your bunting, tidy up any stray branches with a cordless, electric, or petrol hedge trimmer. For smaller hedges, corded trimmers such as the Webb Classic WEEHT500, are great for quick trims that are within your reach. But, to tame tops, sides, and other hard-to-reach hedges, you might want to consider a long-reach petrol hedge trimmer, such as the Webb WEV20PHT. To move more freely around the garden, without the constraints of wires and plug sockets, cordless hedge trimmers, such as the WEV20HT are also a great and practical way to get your hedges looking their best.
