    Top 10 Best Lawn Mowers in the UK 2021 (Flymo, Bosch and More)

    Whether your garden is big or small, it’s nice to have it looking spick and span for when the sun puts his hat on.

However, when it comes to purchasing your new mower, there are some important decisions to be made. Do you want a cordless electric model, or a petrol motor you can ride on?

We've even ranked the top 10 in the UK from trusted brands including Honda, Kärcher and Bosch, on Amazon, eBay, and John Lewis.
