Push Mower for Miniature Rose Garden Care
Let’s start with the basics of a push mower. In this category you have two options to choose from, a manual style or a mechanical engine. Manual push mowers are the cheapest and easiest to get started on the lawn care. Saying that, they are also the most amount of work as the blades will on turn it the motion you give the machine.

Ride On Mower for Miniature Rose Garden Care
If you are like many of us in the miniature rose growing community and have a larger lawn to care for then a ride on mower might be the answer. The types of ride on mowers include zero turn radius mowers as well as your standard tractor mower. Zero turn mowers are particularly handy for tighter areas of your rose garden. This includes around your stage plants and fountains. Zero turn mowers often take time to get used to as their controls are a little different to a normal steering wheel. But once you master the process, lawn care time is dramatically reduced.
Ride on tractors are also help for lawn care as they require much less manual effort than a push mower. The only downfall is that many standard residential models fail to handle inclines very well or be able to go around tight corners.
