Hi all,
I have 2 queries.
Can anyone recommend a good brand of self propelled mower to buy ?
I have a large, new lawn that has to have its first cut. Its bare in spots, would now be a good to give it some lawn feed ?

if the lawn has a bare patch then presumably the grass is dead so what you need to do is lightly dig or scrape the bare patches and sow some grass seeds in the next few weeks. Put on fertiliser if grass is yellow or growing poorly.

We got a Harry, and very happy with it.

I think the basic things to consider when buying a mower are
    ease of adjusting the height at wheels
    ease of pushing i.e depending on your height vs strain on the back
    adjusting the speed of the blades
    adjusting the speed of mower
