If your the type of person who wants a beautiful lawn but also want to keep the planet beautiful then an electric lawn mower may be something for you to consider. Now granted, if you have a large lawn then this style may not be for you, but they are perfect for smaller lawns with soft-bladed grass.

An obvious benefit of an electric mower is they are not nasty pollutants like their gas counterparts. Now when I say pollution Im not just talking smog, anyone whos ever owned a gas mower or had a neighbor who owned one knows about the noise pollution that fills the air when theyre running. Electric mowers however are 75% quieter. This is something that your neighbors will definitely appreciate when theyre sipping ice tea on their lawn come Sunday.

They are also cheaper. Home owners on a budget usually opt for an electric mower because it costs about 56% less at retail than gas mowers. Electric mowers are also cheaper to operate and maintain. They literally cost only pennies to use. In a given year, the typical electric lawn mower only costs about $3 in electricity. Another added benefit is how easy they are to use.

Other than the occasional sharpening, electric mowers are easier to maintain than gas mowers. You simply plug in and go. You dont have to deal with messy oil changes, you dont have to tune them and you if dont want to deal with all the yanking it takes to get your lawn mower started simply choose the push-button mower. They are also a much safer choice, because as a parent or pet owner the last thing you want is for your kids or pet to get near the gas.

Just because electric mowers use less energy and are more environmentally friendly, doesnt mean you have to sacrifice the convenience of added features. Some electric mowers are mulching mowers. As well you can purchase optional accessories like rear or side grass cutters, extended handles or bagging units.

When choosing an electric lawn mower you have the option of opting for a corded or cordless mower. A cordless mower can provide hassle free mowing in that you dont have to worry about anyone tripping over the cord or mowing over it.

However, be sure to keep the size of your lawn in mind when making the decision. You want to make sure you can get through at least one mow before the battery dies. Most manufactures have charts that provide battery length and how much grass you can mow in that time.

A corded mower is not as much of a hassle as you may think. Its really no different than using a vacuum cleaner and they are less expensive. Consider your lawn and decide whats best.

An electric mower is a great way to keep your lawn looking amazing without damaging the environment.
