Reel Mowing Service

How a Reel Mower Works

Your typical power rotary mower has a spinning blade that chops off the top of the grass as it rotates like a helicopter, resulting in torn and shredded turf. Not so with a reel push mower, it cuts your grass, like scissors, which is much better for the health of your lawn.

Advantages of Reel Mowing

The old-fashioned manual/push reel mower has a lot to offer especially if you are environmentally-conscientious. Push reel mowers don’t emit pollution while a typical gas-powered lawn mower running for an hour, will produce as much air pollution as a sedan running for two hundred miles! The push reel mower is very quiet. The only sound it makes is a satisfyingly quiet “snip-snip-snip” while cutting your grass.

Push reel mowers make your lawn look nicer.  Not only are reel mowers better for your grass’ health, they leave your lawn looking professionally manicured. Again, it goes back to the scissor-like way the reel mower cuts the grass. Clean and even cuts make for a clean and even-looking lawn. The reel mower’s superior cut is the reason why groundskeepers at professional baseball stadiums and golf courses use large reel mowers pulled by tractors. The reel cut makes the grass look amazing.

Manual reel mowers can handle a variety of grasses including: Zoysia, St. Augustine, and Bermuda and are best suited for small to medium-sized yards that are regularly maintained.

Although you can’t bag grass clippings with a reel mower, most lawn care experts agree that you shouldn’t bag your clippings and should just leave them in your grass. Grass clippings are a good fertilizer for your lawn.
