view gallery VIEW GALLERY

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

£79.99, gardenlines.co.uk

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.

9. Wolf-Garten Power Edition 37E

£234.98, amazon.co.uk

Powerful and easy to move around, this electric rotary mower has plenty of great design features.

10. Robomo RM510

£1079, mowermagic.co.uk

It may not be cheap, but this automatic mower is a dream for lazy gardeners. You can even pre-set scheduled days for it to mow.
