Tools: a good quality petrol lawn mover will set you
back about £200 upwards. It might seem pricey compared
with a cheap electric mower, but a good quality lawnmower
will last for ages, so its really not that much when you think
of it in terms of a 'cost per year'.
If you like a freshly cut lawn to have a 'stripped' appearence,
get a lawnmower with a built-in roller attached.
