Whether you own a beautiful garden or not, you must be aware of how important it is to keep the grass short! Had it not been for the lawnmower, you would be spending hours and even days to keep your garden in shape... But when was the lawnmower actually invented and how far has it come?
The roots of today's lawnmower date all the way back to 1830. The motive back then was to keep the grass of golf courses game-ready all the time. So it all started with the need to keep golf courses tidy and neat, and this sophisticated machine with blades slowly started being reinvented for general garden purposes as well.

There onwards, many variations of the lawnmower began to be developed gradually, such as those powered by a chain, reel, steam, gas, electric and all the way up till a solar-powered lawnmower in 2001, made by Black and Decker. Now in 2020, Hustler has released an Updated Super Z Riding Mower. Check out the infographic below for the timeline of lawnmower transformation.
