The Lawn Mower

The Lawn Mower was invented by Edward Beard Budding in England in the 1830s. The mower was originally designed for only cutting on sports grass and extensive gardens, but finally he was granted a patent in August of 1830. The mower was pushed from the behind and made of cast iron wheels, which transmitted power from the rear roller to the cutting cylinder. The grass clippings were then tossed into a tray-like box. Later on they realized that a handle must be added to the front to pull the machine along. His machine was the catalyst for the preparation of modern-style sporting ovals, playing fields, grass courts, etc. This led to the systematization of modern rules for many sports, including football, lawn bowls, lawn tennis and others. The lawn mower has made cutting grass a lot easier, faster, and more efficient for today's generation. 

On my brother’s birthday this past year I wanted to do something special for him to show him how much I appreciated him being an amazing role model for me. With some help I was able to purchase Edwin Buddings new lawn mower invention. I wanted to get him this gift because when this machine was released to the public everyone was talking about it and how some maintenance jobs would no longer be needed because of it. People were saying this because of the fact the lawn mower would now get the job done faster and more efficiently, there will be no need to have as many workers working on one task. I thought if my brother had his own he would be able to make better money with it and it would make his life so much easier! Now that he has it he  is very thankful for it and could not imagine life without it.
