Keep your lawn looking neat and tidy with this selection of cordless lawn mowers from top brands like Flymo and Einhell.
You can fill your garden with a wide range of beautiful flowers, shrubs, and trees, but it’s still going to look tired if your lawn is out of control. There is no amount of water features and hanging baskets that can make up for an ugly lawn.
The first step towards creating an oasis in your garden is to cut the grass. A neat and tidy lawn looks great, and it’s actually pretty easy to achieve. Once you deal with any bare or patchy sections, you just need to make sure that it doesn’t grow too long. For this, all you need is a lawn mower.
There are absolutely loads of options out there for every type of garden and gardener. You can take your pick from a long list of electric, cordless, manual, and petrol devices, and the best model for you will really depend on the size and shape of your lawn (and how often you are going to use it). If you are working with a smaller space, you should probably opt for a cordless lawn mower.
Not only do these devices tend to be lighter and more manoeuvrable, but you also don’t have to worry about navigating a cord as you twist around the garden. The best options provide plenty of battery power with a runtime that lets you cover every corner of your lawn. You will have to charge the batteries from time to time, but you should get plenty of use out of your mower before running low.
If a cordless lawn mower seems like the best option for your garden, you’re in luck. There are absolutely loads of impressive devices out there from some of the biggest gardening brands. To make your decision making process that little bit easier, we have shortlisted a selection of the very best models from names like Yard Force, Flymo, and Einhell.
These are the best cordless lawn mowers in 2020.
WORX WG743E.1This popular lawn mower uses two 4.0Ah batteries simultaneously for extra power and runtime.
The Intellicut technology maintains constant cutting power even in dense grass. The mower adjusts its speed and power depending on the grass conditions, which is useful for unruly lawns.
You get the choice of six height settings so you can always get the cut you want, with the ease of a single lever for adjustment. The innovative deck design also enables the WG743E.1 to cut grass close to fencing or walls, leaving a smaller uncut area around the edges.
Yard Force LM G32A powerful, lightweight, and manoeuvrable lawn mower that takes the strain out of cutting the grass.
It comes with a powerful 40V/2.5Ah lithium-ion battery that fully charges in just 75 minutes, giving up to 25 minutes of unrestricted mowing. The single lever height adjustment offers five cutting positions, ensuring that you get the ideal cut throughout the seasons.

Flymo Mighti-MoFive different cutting heights let you make adjustments throughout the year.
It’s powered by a 40V 2Ah Li-ion battery that is easy to fit, remove, and recharge.

It’s a lightweight and compact lawn mower that packs a lot of power into a small frame.
The battery life could probably be a little better, but the convenience of going cordless is worth the wait.
