While zero turn mowers used to be affordable only for professional landscaping companies, now almost any homeowner can use a zero turn mower to cut the grass in as little time as possible. Zero turn mowers are becoming more popular not just for homeowners with large lots but for any homeowner or landowner who wants to cut down on their mowing time.

Why a zero turn mower?

The biggest draw for zero turn mowers is that they can cut your mowing time almost in half. The precise handling lets you mow around landscaping features, trees and shrubs, gardens, and other obstacles much faster than other types of mowers.

How easy is it to drive a zero turn mower?

Easier than you think. With very little practice or instruction, you can learn to handle a zero turn mower with precision and ease. Since almost anyone can learn to drive a zero turn mower, you might find yourself fighting over who gets to mow the lawn this week!

What about mowing on hills?

As long as the hills or slopes in your yard are 10 degrees or less, you will have no problem using a zero turn mower on rolling terrain. To get a better idea of how steep 10 degrees would be, think of a steep hill that you drive in your car. Most road inclines are less than 10 degrees.

If the hill is too steep to stand on, your zero turn mower could lose traction or skid. Keep in mind that there is no power to the front wheels of a zero turn mower. Only the rear wheels have power.

What is the best zero turn mower?

When it comes to choosing a zero turn mower, go with a quality brand that you can trust. Ariens, Toro, and Husqvarna are three mower brands that have proven their quality over time. A quality zero turn mower is money well spent.

MowerSource.com carries only the best. Our Ariens, Husqvarna, and Toro zero turn mowers offer exceptional performance at a price you can afford.

Healthy lawn

When too much thatch builds up on your lawn, it blocks water and nutrients from fully absorbing into the grass, which makes your lawn start to suffocate and turn brown. By removing the thatch when needed (after it reaches about a half inch in depth), you can keep your lawn healthy and green.

How to Dethatch Your Lawn

You have several options when it comes to dethatching your lawn. First, you can do it yourself by using a dethatching rake or by renting a commercial dethatcher. If you have a small lawn, you can dethatch it manually with a special rake designed to remove the layer of thatch buildup from your lawn. This is the gentlest way to dethatch your lawn, but it also requires the most work on your part and takes a long time to completely cover your entire lawn. That’s why we only recommend it for very small yards.

Another do-it-yourself option is to rent a dethatcher from a hardware store or lawn supply store. Since it’s a heavy piece of equipment, you’ll need a way to load it on a truck and unload it when you get it to your house. A commercial dethatcher is much more efficient and faster than a rake, if you can find a place to rent one. The blade depth is adjustable; typically you don’t want it to reach any deeper than a half inch into the soil.

Finally, you can opt for commercial dethatching from a local lawn service. This is the best option if you are not familiar with the process of dethatching or don’t want to take the time to do it yourself.

Practical Advice

  • Before dethatching your lawn, we recommend cutting your grass to half its normal height. This makes it easier to see the thatch layer and how effectively you’re raking the lawn.
  • Mark any hidden objects on your lawn that you need to avoid, such as irrigation heads.
  • To get the best results, dethatch each section of your lawn twice, going over it the second time at a 90 degree angle compared to your first pass with the dethatcher.

Lawn Care after Dethatching

  • If your lawn looks a bit ragged after you dethatch it, that’s normal. It will take anywhere from 3 to 4 weeks for your lawn to return to normal—and when it does, it should be greener and healthier than before.
  • Use a rake to remove the thatch loosened up by the rake or machine. Then spread grass seed over areas that are bare. Rake the seeds lightly into the soil.
  • Fertilize your lawn after dethatching. Keep the grass well watered to help your lawn recover from the dethatching process. Regular watering, fertilizing, aerating, and mowing will help keep your lawn healthy and prevent rapid buildup of the thatch layer.

Spring is the perfect time to get your lawn mower ready for the season. Regular tune-ups and maintenance can make your lawn mower last longer, perform better, and keep your lawn healthy and curb appeal friendly. Here are some tips on getting your lawn mower ready for spring.

Toro lawn mower

1. Read the manual.

First, read the manufacturer’s maintenance instructions in your manual. Make sure the maintenance you are performing is recommended by the manufacturer for your specific lawn mower.

Also, if you’re not comfortable working on your lawn mower, get professional help, or ask a friend who’s more mechanically minded to help you out.

2. Get ready.

Work in a ventilated area. If you’re in the garage, open the overhead door for maximum ventilation. Get together the supplies that you’ll need, including a drop cloth, cleaning brush, work gloves, engine oil, and lubricant. You’ll also need a new spark plug and air filter, if your lawn mower uses a paper filter.

Cover the garage floor, driveway, or other work area with a drop cloth to protect the ground from any spills and to make cleanup easier.

3. Disconnect the spark plug.

Before you do any work on your lawn mower, disconnect the spark plug. This step is extremely important, since it prevents the lawn mower from accidentally starting while you are performing maintenance.

4. Clean it up.

Remove the grass catcher (if equipped) and brush away any dried grass clippings on the mower deck as well as underneath. You may need to use a putty knife to remove dried clods of grass and debris. If your lawn mower has a wash port built into the deck, we recommend cleaning your lawn mower after each use to make this step easier.

5. Replace the oil.

Change the oil by removing the drain plug at the bottom of the engine and allowing the dirty oil to run out into a container. Then put the plug back in place and add new engine oil. Choose the type of oil recommended in the owner’s manual for your lawn mower.

6. Sharpen the blade.

Did you know that a dull lawn mower blade can shred the tips of your grass and make your lawn turn brown? Sharpen the blade at least once a year. More often is better, but for most homeowners, once a year is better than never. Remove the blade from the mower before sharpening it. This is also a good time to thoroughly clean the underside of the mower, with the blade removed. If the blade has large nicks in it from hitting rocks or other debris, you should replace it with a new lawn mower blade.

7. Lubricate.

Lubricate the wheel bearings and any moving parts to keep them working smoothly. This also helps prevent rusting during storage.

8. Clean or replace the air filter.

Next, it’s time to clean or change the filter. If your lawn mower has a paper filter, replace the filter with a new one each mowing season. If your lawn mower has a foam filter, remove the filter and clean it with dish detergent and water. Then lightly saturate it with engine oil, wipe off the excess oil with a shop rag or plastic bag, and put the filter back in place.

If you see any wear or damage inside your air cleaner element, replace it immediately. If your air cleaner is faulty, you risk damaging the lawn mower engine—which is much more costly to fix.

9. Change the spark plug.

Finally, you’ll need to replace the spark plug. This ensures easy starting. Use a socket wrench to replace the spark plug. Then reconnect the wire. Your mower is now ready for the season!
