Quieter and much cleaner, the electric lawnmower is looking more and more like the go-to choice. While traditionalists like the gas mower’s ability to take on long, thick turf — and the fact that it’s cordless — there are great electric options, including rechargeable, cordless models. Your neighbours won’t miss the noise or the stench, and we all like fewer greenhouse-gas emissions. There’s no need to refuel and maintenance is minimal.
