However, if you use a battery-powered mower, it can be a very nice alternative compared to other typical mower. Also make sure that the mower is in good shape and works properly. Before you do the mowing, you first need to prepare your lawn. Clean it, remove objects and mark the obstacles in the ground for your own safety.  Your lawn can be full of branches, stones, bones, glass bottles, cans, and other objects that can damage your mower or injure you if you do no observe precaution. If there are obstacles that cannot be removed like large rocks or pipes that are camouflaged in the grass, mark it to ensure your safety.  

Have a pattern in mowing your lawn. It is better if you go back and forth. Do not go in a circle or go anywhere. It will be easier and time saving if you do it this way. It is also advisable if you use the half-pass trick.  After every pass in mowing, overlap the area that you have already done mowing by half of the width in your mower. You may say at first that it creates more work, it actually saves you time and energy because you are doing it smoother. After doing the actual mowing, tidy up and remove all the grass clippings using a rake. Also, do not forget to clean the mower blades after using it.  

Do this early in the morning and maintain it. However, if you want to have a better result in your lawn that will cost you less time and energy, you can hire a professional lawn service company. Check them out here and begin you lawn mowing journey today.
