These days, it's all about the gas - gas lawnmowers, gas trimmers. And once you get into winter, there are gas snow blowers. When it comes to your Ottawa turf care, gas is just so convenient. There's no cord to get tangled up in, you can buy gas virtually anywhere, and the power of a gas engine can be quite impressive. However, gas is expensive and harmful for the environment. Luckily, there's an equally mobile alternative in the modern push reel mower. It may seem a little old school, but you should consider it as a viable “green” option for your turf maintenance program.
