If you've been putting off giving that yard a much-needed bit of attention, now is the perfect time to get started. You may have been busying yourself during self-isolation by deep cleaning your house, but consider turning your attention to your yard and doing some gardening too. 

Those of us that are lucky to have access to the outdoors at this time can benefit from fresh air and even the odd bit of sunshine without even leaving home, and if you've got a spacious lawn, you can even rack up that step count by pushing a lawn mower around it. Move over, home gyms.  

It looks like we could be in lockdown for the long-haul, so now's the time to invest your energies outdoors and trade the park for your back-yard. Once your lawn is back on top form, check out our guide to organic gardening as an incentive for getting your hands dirty. 

Lawn mowers on sale 

These are the best lawn mowers on sale right now. We've priced them low to high, so scroll on if you're after a heavy-duty mower. You'll typically pay more for a self-propelled mower. That's because it takes a bit less muscle to manage, as you won't need to manually push it through your lawn. However, push mowers are less expensive alternatives, and good for getting in some daily activity!
