HONDA Lawnmower Guide to Help You Choose the Right Mower for Your Lawn
What is the best Honda Lawn mower to buy?
When you are considering which Honda lawnmower to purchase, one of the most important factors to consider is the size of lawn to be cut. If you consider your lawn as a tennis court, a full-sized tennis court is a medium sized garden, half the court or less is a small lawn and anything bigger is a large lawn.
How to Select the Right Honda Lawnmower for Your Size of Garden?
A small garden is mowable with a Honda hand push lawnmower. Petrol lawnmowers are ideal for medium and large sized gardens, as well as for the professional landscaper. Ride On lawnmowers and lawn tractors are ideal for very large gardens. For the reluctant gardener, the Honda Miimo robotic mower is the perfect grass cutting solution.
Honda’s lawnmower size is measured in blade width (inch/cm). The larger the blade, the larger the mower and the more grass it will cut on each pass. For example, for a small lawn, a lawnmower with a cutting width of 30 - 40cm / 12” – 16” would be ideal, whereas large lawns would be best with a cutting width in excess of 40cm. Choosing the right size lawn mower for the size of your lawn makes all the difference in terms of being easy to use. Too large a mower on a small lawn and you’ll struggle to manoeuvre it in tight corners, while too small a lawn mower on a large lawn and you’ll find it takes much longer to cut all the grass.
What’s the difference between a Honda push and self-propelled lawnmower?
How your lawnmower is powered will make a difference to its portability and how much effort it takes to use it. Push lawnmowers are simply pushed along with your own muscle power and are ideally suited for smaller gardens. Push lawnmowers can prove to be highly cost-effective and models such as Honda IZY range are designed to be lightweight for ease of use.
Petrol lawnmowers are ideally suited for large gardens where a mains cable is unsuitable. They are very powerful, fast at cutting and easy to manoeuvre around large objects. Like car engines, petrol lawnmowers need servicing and the oil needs to be checked and topped up as required. Most of our branches carry out Honda lawnmower servicing.
Lawnmowers that are self-propelled means you don’t need to push them. They simply need to be steered in the right direction, which makes mowing much easier, especially with large lawns and heavy machines. If you are looking for the striped lawn finish, a lawnmower with a rear roller is what you’ll need. The heavier the mower and its roller, the longer the stripes will last. Rear rollers also allow you to mow right up to the edge of the lawn.
Can a Honda Lawnmower Mulch Grass Cuttings?
Honda lawnmowers have a collection bag or box that holds the grass clippings created by the mower. This removes the need for using a rake and a large capacity grass collector saves numerous trips to the green bin or compost heap. Some models have a mulching facility, whereby the cuttings are finely chopped up and pushed back into the turf where they decompose and feed the soil. Mulching puts the nutrients back into grass and lawn quality improves over the course of the season.
Can You Adjust the Honda Lawnmower Cutting Height?
Cutting height refers to how high the grass will be when you have cut it. Most Honda lawnmowers have adjustable grass cutting heights. Cutting height usually range between 20mm-60mm but if you want to cut a pristine, bowling green type lawn, look for a minimum cut of around 13mm.
General Lawn Maintenance
Lawns need regular mowing regimes to encourage grasses to develop fine leaves. It also keeps the growth green, lush and dense, and stops weeds and moss spreading. The biggest single mistake people make when cutting lawns is to cut it too low. This effectively ‘scalps’ the grass and can seriously weaken it. Always remove leaves and grass clippings after mowing and feed the lawn in spring and autumn with lawn fertiliser.
