Here are some things to consider when buying a new lawn mower.

1. Consider the size of your lawn

*Push mowers are suitable for lawns up to 1/3 acre.

*Self-propelled walk mowers are suitable for lawns up to ½ acre.

*Riding mowers are suitable for yards up to 2 acres or more.

*Zero-turn mowers are suitable for yards up to 2 acres or more.

*Robotic mowers are suitable for yards up to 1 ¼ acres (or more by using multiple units.)

2. Think about slopes and obstacles
*High rear wheels make it easier to maneuver around obstacles.

*Front-wheel drive (FWD) mowers can handle flat terrain, rear-wheel drive (RWD) mowers perform better on slopes. Choose an all-wheel drive (AWD) mower for the best of both worlds.
*If you have obstacles in your yard, a zero-turn mower is smart choice.
*Robotic mowers can handle narrow passages and even grades up to 26°.

3. Pay attention to mower features
*Push mowers and self-propelled walk mowers offer bagging, side-discharge or mulching options. 
*Some models of riding mower accept attachments boosting their usefulness.
*The steering style of zero-turn mowers offers excellent maneuverability  in complex spaces.
*Robotic mowers cut just a little grass at a time. As a result, they naturally fertilize the lawn with tiny clippings.
