How to Identify and Fix Common Gardening Problems ?

A good starting point for a medium-sized yard – an acre to an acre and a half — is a 42” mower. With a larger mower, you`ll spend a lot of time maneuvering into position and around tight corners. For homeowners with one and a half to three acres to mow, a mower with a cutting deck between 42” to 48” is a good size.
Riding mowers are best suited for yards measuring one acre or larger. A model with a 42-inch cutting deck is great for mowing up to two acres, so if you have more land than that, you`ll want to spring for a 46, 54, 60, or 72-inch cutting deck.
Lawn tractors have a mid-mounted cutting deck, while a riding lawn mower`s cutting deck is under the front of the vehicle. Riding lawn mowers are more maneuverable with the cutting deck at the front. Maneuverability is essential when a lawn is dotted with shrubs and trees.
Most riding mowers last between 500-700 hours, although some can run for as much as 1,000 hours if cared for and maintained properly.
As a rough rule of thumb, a single-cylinder mower with 500-750 hours would be considered a high miler, but that`s not to say it`s all worn out. A well-maintained mower will go on and on, as said earlier, my own ride-on mower has about 1000 hours and still pulls its weight around here.
