7 Best Lawn Care and Lawn Mower Forums For The Lawn Obsessed

If you’re looking to start a lawn care business (or already own one) you’ll want to be active in lawn care forums.

We are members of 5 lawn care and lawn mower forums and have briefly been in 6 more that sucked.

We’re here to tell you the best ones to join.

Why?

3 reasons:

  1. So you can talk about lawns and lawn care with like-minded people. Giving and getting tips, learning more about pest control, weed identification, irrigation, grass types and soil fertility.
  2. So you can learn more about lawn mowers and how to service them to maximize their working lifespan. Learn about other peoples complaints and loves of different mower brands and models.
  3. For you enjoyment of seeing great lawns, cool mowers and funny lawn care memes.

To do this we will use a tier list.

What is a tier list you might ask?

A tier list is a way of visually ranking (in this case lawn care forums) from best to worst.

Take a look:

What makes Lawn World a GOOD forum?

Lawn World is most active in the equipment side of lawn care. Almost half the messages are to do with riding or walk behind lawn mowers or small engine repair.

This is awesome because we find the focus allows us to know which forum to come to for specific lawn mower repair questions and information.

What type of things are discussed?

In typical forum fashion a person will come with a question they want answered, for example: “What to do – frame cracks (MZ Magnum) pics attached”. And then you have 10+ responses to this message with suggestions what to do.

The forums is organized by lawn mower brands and small engine brands.

The Lawn Forum is a well organized forum with discussion on every you would expect: pest control, nutrients, equipment, types of grass, landscaping, home improvement and gardening.

It has less members than the other forums so far but the members are active and keen for discussions.

DECENT Tier Forums:

What makes MyLawnmowerForum.com DECENT?

We like this forum but had to keep in the DECENT tier instead of bumping it into the GOOD tier. DECENT is still decent and we visit it weekly but it isn’t active enough to be more than DECENT tier. It get 2-3 posts a day and those get 2 – 3 messages each. So year, not very active.

But.

They still have a good library of information in their archives to do with fixing your lawn mower.

  • Threads: 157k

Another DECENT tier forum is Lawn Service Forum. They have good info and threads but the website is slow and clunky and the activity traffic isn’t there. If they don’t sort out there website speed then they will drop to the MEH tier.

MEH Tier Forums:

Houzz lawn care forum logoHouzz.com/discussions/lawn-care

  • Threads: 17k

This forum is MEH tier because the activity isn’t there. There is maybe 1 post every 2 days and that post gets maybe 1 message back.

There You Have It

That’s our lawn care and lawn mower forum tier list.
