Choosing the Right Gas Mower for Your Yard

When selecting the correct lawn mower that will meet your needs, you should consider your yard size and landscape, clipping disposal options and engine preference. And depending if you want a little workout or none at all, choose from Push Mowers, SelfPropelled Mower models.

How To Handle Grass Clipping

The cutting deck on your gas lawn mower will determine how your grass clippings will be managed. The options include:

Mulching Mowers:Mulching mowers feature a high dome deck that contains clippings as they are cut into fine pieces and redistributed to your lawn, adding helpful nutrients.

Bagging Mowers: Bagging mowers provide your cleanest-looking lawn option. A rear bag collects clippings for disposal or composting. Rear bags, as well as mulching mowers, are most convenient for mowing near fences, trees and other obstacles from either side of the mower.

Side Discharge: disperses clippings across the lawn as you mow. It is most effective with high grass or wet lawn conditions that prevent bagging or mulching.

How to Chose Between Push Mowers and SelfPropelled Mowers

Push Mowers: Best for smaller, flat yards up to 1/4 acre with few obstacles. The operator pushes the mower as the gas engine powers the blade. These simple to-operate mowers are economically-priced.

Ideal for inclines, uneven or hilly terrain and for yards between 1/3 to 1/2 acre. The engine powers both the blade and the wheels. Available in front, rear wheel or all-wheel drive for even greater traction.

Additional Features to Consider when Purchasing a Gas Lawn Mower

Electric Key Start: Starts with a simple turn of an automotive-style ignition key.

Speed Control: Selfpropelled models feature variable speeds for adjustment without stopping the mower. You’re able to easily slow down around obstacles and speed up in open areas.

High Wheels: Rear high wheels improve maneuverability and reduce effort on hilly or uneven terrain.

Deck Wash-out Port: Your garden hose connects to the deck port to clean and maintain air flow.

Count on True Value for all your lawn care needs. In addition to our gas lawn mowers, we also carry a line of riding, electric and reel mowers. Troy-Bilt, Husqvarna, Black Decker, and DeWALT to name a few. Get ready to add curb appeal to your home today.

Mulching Mowers

Push-mower, mulching electric and gas lawnmowers, and conventional mower all can be used for grasscycling.

Shopping for a mulching lawn mower

The tips below will help you find a grasscycling mower that’s right for you. For up-to-date ratings of mulch-mower performance, consult spring issues of Consumer Reports, available at your local library. Or use your library card number to log on to the Consumer Reports website for free from the Seattle Public Library.

Call the Garden Hotline, (206) 633-0224, or email questions from Learn there about stores near you that sell mulching mowers, or ask any lawn and garden question.

Push mowers

Not only are push mowers quiet, non-polluting, inexpensive, and good exercise – they do a good job of grasscycling. One disadvantage is that they can’t chop and blow the clippings down into the turf like a power mulching mower. But you can always rake up the areas where clippings might be tracked into the house. Grass clippings make great compost and mulch.

Push mowers are sold in most local hardware stores, as well as big department and discount stores. Quality of construction varies with price, so comparison shop. Test the handle for stiffness, strong attachment to the mower, and comfortable hand grips. Compare the ease of height adjustment, and look for smooth, sharp blade edges. Higher priced mowers often have six blades rather than five, to cut more smoothly.

Yard sales may yield a fine old push mower, which can be reconditioned and sharpened by a mower repair shop. Or check out local hardware stores or mower repair shops. Many of them sell good reconditioned mowers at about half the new price. Repair shops can also sharpen blades for you. Remember, sharp blades cut cleaner, easier, and leave your lawn healthier and better looking.

Electric mulching mowers

Electric mowers are much quieter than gas models, and there’s no smelly exhaust and no problem disposing of used oil or old fuel. If you can mow weekly in the spring, you’ll probably never need to bag or rake. For small yards, an electric mower with a cord may be the perfect grasscycling machine. For bigger yards, the cordless electric mowers (with rechargeable batteries) may be worth the extra cost. In general, electric mowers are not as powerful as gas mowers, so they usually have slightly shorter blades and will have to be pushed a little slower in overgrown, wet grass. But they’re easy to start, easy on your ears, and good for our air quality too!

Gas mulching mowers

Mulching mowers generally have more powerful engines than conventional mowers, because it takes extra power to re-cut clippings into mulch. Mowers that are designed to mulch will grasscycle much better than conventional bagging mowers that are converted to mulching. Most mulching models are convertible for bagging. Selfpropelled and riding mulching mowers are also available.

For cleaner air, avoid 2-cycle engines — look for 4-cycle mowers that meet the California EPA pollution standards. And try to run the tank dry when you stop mowing in the fall, to avoid having to dispose of hazardous gasoline. Call 1-800-RECYCLE to learn about recycling used motor oil.

Grasscycling with a conventional mower

You can grasscycle with your old non-mulching lawn mower. If it’s a rear-discharge bagging mower, remove the bag and cover the discharge chute. (Most rear-baggers have a cover that drops down when the bag is removed, to protect you from flying rocks.) Clippings will be held under the deck to be re-chopped, and then dropped on the lawn. If you have a side-discharge mower with a deflector that sprays clippings out as you mow, simply mow in a pattern that spreads clippings uniformly on the lawn. While you can buy special “mulching” blades, tests show that you’ll get the best mulching performance just by keeping your existing blade sharp. See the Grasscycling Tips for more suggestions on how to grasscycle successfully with any mower.

What is a Mulching Lawn Mower and How Does It Work?

mowers, self, propelled, mulcher

Are you perplexed by the many different lawn mowers on the market? Mulching lawn mowers are a popular option for homeowners today because they offer multiple ways to get rid of your grass clippings.

What is a mulching lawn mower?

A mulching mower is a machine where the blade and mowing deck are designed to chop the grass multiple times before the cut grass goes back into the lawn. Side discharge mowers direct the grass to the side, and using a bag attachment directs the grass clippings into the bag.

Among these three types of mowers, only the mulching mower leaves you with finely cut grass cuttings, which provide fertilizer and shade for the soil. You may hear this kind of mowing called “mulch mowing.”

How does a mulching mower work?

mowers, self, propelled, mulcher

Mulching mowers aren’t different from other mowers in most ways. In all lawn mowers (push mowers, ride-on, etc.), you need lift so the grass stays vertical while the mower blade cuts.

Mulching mowers not only create a stream of air that directs the grass up into the mower blades, but once the grass is cut, the clippings hit the blade multiple times before they go back onto the lawn. This is in contrast to other mowers which direct the clippings out the side or into a bag.

This is by design, of course. Mulching blades use curved edges to generate this extra cutting action and generally have more surface area devoted to cutting.

Mulching blades are sometimes called “all purpose” or “3-in-1” blades because you can use them to mulch, bag, or side discharge. Standard blades are called 2-in-1 blades because you can use them to either bag or side discharge the grass.

Can I use my current mower to recycle my grass clippings?

Yes. Contact your local lawn mower retailer (or your mower manufacturer) to ask if you need a conversion kit. These mulching kits may include a plate (AKA mulching plug) to close your discharge opening (or bag opening) and a new blade. Or, you may only need a new blade.

Both push and ride-on mowers can recycle grass clippings back into the lawn. Close your discharge chute or remove the bag and voilà. However, a mulching mower blade does a better job because the pieces are smaller and will break down more quickly in the lawn.

How to use a mulching mower

In short, use it just as you would any other mower. Here are a few lawn care tips to make sure your mulching mowing sessions are a success:

  • Don’t mow when it’s wet. The mower might not be able to cut the grass blades as finely due to the extra weight and tendency to clump. Also, the underside of your lawn mower will be covered in wet grass.
  • Mow often. Follow the golden rule of mowing: Remove no more than one-third of the grass blade per mow.
  • Mow at the correct height. Believe it or not, this simple advice makes a big difference in your lawn. Each grass type performs best when cut at a certain height. (There are many soil and grass scientists who devote lots of time and energy at grass test plots to figure this out.)

The seasons also can make a difference in your mowing height. Some advise that you should mow a half inch taller during the hottest part of the year and mow slightly shorter for the first and last cuts of the season. (Where it snows, it may be advisable to mow as low as possible on the last mow to prevent snow mold.)

Ask your local Cooperative Extension office for the best seasonal advice.

  • Consider your lawn density. A dense lawn may put extra strain on your mower. When you’re buying a lawn mower, buy one that has sufficient power for your needs. Don’t skimp in this area — you’ll regret it.
  • Maintain a sharp blade. A sharp mower blade is a must. A sharp mower blade gives you a clean cut instead of a torn one, which can invite disease into your lawn. Use a file, a hand grinder, a bench grinder, or a sharpening stone attachment on your cordless drill to sharpen the blade.

mowers, self, propelled, mulcher

How often should you sharpen your mower blade? It depends on the type of grass you have, how often you mow, and the density of your lawn. Here’s an easy test: If you look at the tip of the grass blade and it looks torn instead of cleanly cut, it’s time. If you have a dense lawn with stiff-bladed grass like Zoysia, you may need to sharpen your blade as often as once per month.

  • Keep the deck clean. Hose off the clippings underneath the deck at the end of each mowing session. A buildup of gunk on the underside of the deck may prevent the clippings from circulating as well as they should.

Mulching matters

You may wonder, “So, what’s the big deal about whether I mulch grass or not?” Well, mulched clippings not only contribute to a healthy lawn but help out your local environment as well.

Cities are jumping on the bandwagon because, for one reason, grass clippings produce a lot of waste. According to the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection, a half acre lawn can generate “260 bags of grass clippings” in a single year — that’s more than 3 tons!

As you can see, it’s also in their best interest to educate homeowners on the benefits of recycling their grass clippings back into the lawn and reduce the landfill waste in their city.

To sum it all up, mulching, sometimes called “grasscycling” has many benefits:

  • Saves time (no more raking fall leaves)
  • Saves money (free fertilizer, no garbage fees)
  • Helps protect the environment (no grass clippings in streams or landfills)
  • Reduces erosion (helps keep the soil in place)


Are there any times I should not mulch in my clippings?

Yes, there are instances when it’s best not to mulch your grass clippings back into the lawn.

—When you have a fungus : If you’re trying to recover from a fungus on your grass, don’t mulch in these lawn clippings. That would only spread the disease further across your lawn. —If you have weeds that are going to seed : It’s a good idea to bag in this instance and put the clippings in your yard waste bin. You don’t want to help your weeds redistribute their seeds for next season. —If you have too many leaves on the lawn: If you have over 50% leaf coverage, you may want to bag as you mow. Too much leaf litter and grass mulched into the lawn at one time can damage the grass. Afterward, add the mulched leaves/grass mix to the compost bin, or use the mix as winter protection for your flower beds.

Other benefits of using a mulching mower:

— No cumbersome bag to deal with on the lawn mower — No concerns about how to dispose of your grass clippings — Fertilize and mow at the same time — Avoid putting valuable nutrients and moisture into the landfill

Will the clippings contribute to the thatch in my lawn?

The short answer is no, cut grass clippings do not contribute to thatch in your lawn. Thatch is a layer of organic matter (living and dead) that accumulates between living, growing vegetation (grass) and the soil.

As long as the thatch is less than about a half inch, your lawn is fine. If it gets above that level, depending on your grass type, you may want to consider dethatching or aerating (which will inevitably remove some of the thatch). (Note: Aeration is when you pull plugs from the soil to help air, water, and nutrients circulate better throughout. This helps roots grow deeper and stronger, and you have a greener, healthier lawn as a result.)

If you’d enjoy having someone else mow and fertilize your lawn (with your grass clippings or with store-bought fertilizer), contact one of our local lawn care pros. They’ll get your lawn on the path to a greener, fuller future.
