Maintaining a lawn can be a chore, but it doesn't have to be a sustainability nightmare. One of the most eco-friendly ways to mow your lawn is with a reel mower, which has been around since the 19th century and is powered by, well… you. Of course, reel mowers are not suitable for everyone, as they can be heavy, difficult to maneuver, and require physical effort to operate.

But electric mowers are a more accessible and environmentally friendly option that has come a long way in recent years. With new designs and technology, they have become more reliable and practical, making them ideal for typical quarter-acre or slightly larger lots. They also have a push-button start, making it easier to get going and finish the job quickly so you can actually enjoy your well-manicured yard. Here are the 5 best eco-friendly lawnmowers we could find to help people with any type of lawn do their part for the environment.
