From petrol-fuelled to self-propelled

1. Bosch Rotak Ergoflex 40

£169.99, homebase.co.uk

A good choice for small to medium lawns. Its rear roller leaves a nice stripe and it performs well right up to the lawn edge.

2. Masport Rotarola SP18

£579, gardenmachinery superstore.co.uk

This petrol mower is heavy, but if it's a classic striped lawn you're after, this is as good as it gets.

3. Flymo Easimo

£69.99, argos.co.uk

Small, light and easy to move around. The inset front wheels help it cut close to edges and the handle folds twice for easy storage.

 

4. Hayter Spirit 41

£299, hayter.co.uk

This petrol-fuelled model breezes through standard lawns, particularly where there's long grass, and cuts close to lawn edges.

5. Flymo Chevron 32VC

This wheeled rotary mower is good for small lawns. There's a single lever to adjust the cutting height and an adjustable handle.

6. Toro Timecutter ZS3200

£2375.12, psmlawnmowers.co.uk

A small turning circle means you can navigate around any obstacles with ease. This one is also very fast and really good fun.

7. Mountfield HP46

£349.98, diy.com

If you have a larger lawn or have long or rough grass, this will be your new best friend. An effective roller gives neat stripes, too.

8. Honda HRG465

£429, justhonda.co.uk

Voted best buy by Which?, this self-propelled mower is simple to use and easy to clean. It's an all-round solid performer.
