About Lawn Mowers

Cylinder mowers can be electric, petrol powered or simply hand pushed. The blades rotate vertically like a cylinder against a bottom blade and this gives a scissor-like cut and a well manicured lawn. These mowers are perfect for level lawns where a really fine, short cut is required. They come with a variety of cutting widths, rollers for a striped effect and detachable grass collection boxes so you can choose whether or not to collect the clippings.

Rotary – Rotary mowers are extremely versatile and cope with most types of lawn and rougher grassy areas or difficult, sloping banks. Choose from either electric or petrol driven models and either manual push or self-propelled.

If you have a big area to mow or you have difficulty in pushing a lawnmower, then a self-propelled model is definitely worth considering although it might be slightly more expensive. On a rotary mower the blades rotate horizontally at the selected cutting height and the grass is thrown out at the back into a grass collection box. If you don't want to collect the clippings you simply take the box off.

Hover – Hover mowers are rotary mowers that literally hover over the surface of the grass. Generally without wheels, some models do now have rear wheels to make it easier to move them into position prior to use. However, as most models need to be carried, this has led to their lightweight design. The handle folds so the machine can be hung from a shed or garage wall making them extremely space efficient too.

A hover mower is ideal for small to medium gardens, while a bigger model could cope with a medium to large lawn – although the trailing cable will always be a nuisance. Some models come with an integrated grass collection box. If you want to keep your lawn neat and tidy, then a hover mower will do a great job but if you want a high quality cut then it's not the best choice.

About Cumbria

Cumbria, the third largest ceremonial county in England by area. It is bounded to the north by Dumfries and Galloway, to the west by the Irish Sea, to the south by Lancashire, to the southeast by North Yorkshire and to the east by County Durham and Northumberland.

A predominantly rural county, Cumbria contains the Lake District and associated Lake District National Park considered one of the most beautiful areas of England. The area has provided inspiration for generations of British and foreign artists, writers and musicians. Much of the county is mountainous and it contains every peak in England over 900 metres (3,000 ft) above sea level with Scafell Pike at 978 metres (3,209 ft) being the highest point in England. Long existing as an upland, coastal and rural area Cumbria's heritage is characterised by a broad number of invasions, migration and settlement as well as battles and skirmishes between the English and Scottish. Some of the more notable historic sites in Cumbria include Carlisle Castle, Furness Abbey, Hadrian's Wall and Rheged.

At the end of the period of British history known as Roman Britain (c.410AD) the inhabitants of Cumbria were Old Welsh speaking native "Romano-Britons" probably descended from the Brigantes tribe who had been conquered by the Roman Empire in about 85AD. During the dark ages Cumbria formed the core of the Brythonic kingdom of Rheged. By the end of the 7th century most of Cumbria had been incorporated into the Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Northumbria which later became part of England. Large parts of Cumbria were ruled by Scotland at the time of Norman Conquest of England in 1066 and were excluded from the Domesday Book survey of 1086. In 1092 Cumberland was invaded by William Rufus and reincorporated within England.

Cumbria is the most northwesterly county of England. The northernmost and southernmost points in Cumbria are just west of Deadwater, Northumberland and South Walney respectively, whilst Kirkby Stephen (close to Tan Hill, Yorkshire) and St Bees Head are the most easterly and westerly points of the county. Scafell Pike is the highest point in Cumbria and in England, whilst Windermere is the largest lake in Cumbria and also the largest in England.

Many large companies and organisations are based in Cumbria, the county council itself employs around 17,000 individuals whilst the largest private employer in the Cumbria; Sellafield nuclear processing site has a workforce of 10,000. The largest and most widespread industry in Cumbria is tourism, the county receives some 15.3 million visitors every year. Over 36,000 Cumbrians are employed in the tourism industry which adds £1.1 billion to the county's economy on a yearly basis. The Lake District National Park is the single biggest draw; receiving in excess of 8.3 million visitors per year from across the UK, Europe, North America and the Far East (in particular Japan).
