In 1830, a talented and innovative textile engineer named Edwin Budding came up with the idea for a machine to cut grass.

 

Prior to his invention of the world's first lawnmower, grass was kept under control with hand scythes.

 

It was an invention that would shape the social, cultural and sporting life around the world.

 

The Budding Legacy by Chris Biddle celebrates a British grass-roots invention - and looks at the development of the lawnmower from Budding's original machine to todays robotic mowers.

 

Content includes profile of Edwin Budding; lawnmower Timeline, turf perfection at Wimbledon; the smell of grass; iconic mowing machines; inside the British Lawnmower Museum; the perfectionists . . . . and much more.
