Britain’s Best Lawn

If you think your lawn is the best in Britain then we want to hear from you!

Each year, Briggs & Stratton, the world largest producer of petrol engines for lawn mowers and other outdoor power equipment, search the length and breadth of the UK to find gardeners passionate about their lawns in its Britain’s Best Lawn competition. Past winners have been dedicated to maintaining their lawn to the highest standard, with one winner spending up to 10 hours a day looking after his lawn!

Briggs & Stratton seek to recognise the commitment of gardeners working hard across Britain. If you think that your lawn has what it takes to be a winner, and if you work hard to maintain a beautiful lawn, then we want to reward all that you do!

From the smallest patch to the grandest rounds, Britain’s Best Lawn is open to everyone – the only criteria is a real passion for lawns!

Briggs & Stratton are looking for lawns of all different shapes and sizes based all over the UK and entries will be judged on the overall quality of the lawn and its features.

The Importance of Lawns

Gardening is a great way of exercising and mowing the lawn can be surprisingly good for you!

Cutting a quarter acre of lawn with a walk-behind lawnmower can burn up to 340 calories per hour with raking and collecting leaves clocking up 260 calories per hour! In addition to physical benefits, gardening also has a long list of social and therapeutic gains. Research has suggested that gardening can reduce the occurrence of stress and depression as well as alleviating the symptoms of dementia and Alzheimer’s.

There is no doubt that gardening can have enormous beneficial effects on health. Yet what can it do for the environment? An acre of grass produces enough oxygen for sixty-four people a day to survive on, and a single acre can absorb vast quantities of fossil-fuel created sulphur dioxide.

Don’t just take Briggs & Stratton’s word for it though, NASA also argue that nitrogen discharged from decomposing grass clippings more than compensates for the carbon being released and helps neutralise carbon footprints.

So working hard to win the prestigious Best Lawn title comes hand in hand with many other benefits!
