A lawn mower is a garden tool for mowing a lawn. It can be distinguished:

* Reel Mower with precise cutting performance but low space
* Bar mower with precise cutting and medium area coverage and
* Rotary mower with imprecise but high average surface power

In the 18th Century spread from England coming a new form of garden design, garden landscape with intensively cultivated pleasure grounds in the castle environment, from all over Europe. In this huge park was mowing with a scythe a major challenge. At the beginning of the 19th Century, for example, were employed in the park of Blenheim Palace (England) 50 employees constantly mowing the lawn.

In parallel, in England sports like lawn tennis, soccer, croquet, cricket and rugby, which also require an intensive manicured lawns, and more popular.

To Edwin Beard Budding in 1830 recognized (1795-1846), a textile engineer from Stroud in Gloucestershire, England, that the hand scythes even no improvement was possible. But he now saw in the local weaving a machine: This led to the fabric after weaving on a fixed blade, severing along by a rotating spindle with more blades projecting fibers to achieve a more uniform appearance. Budding transferred this principle to the grass cutting, reported on 31 August 1830 for a patent on the mower and began, along with John Ferrabee, the owner of the Phoenix Mill, to produce this mower.
