When talking about losing the electric Lawn Mowers, there is one risk people usually face contact with water. Water from rainfall is considered to be quite unpredictable in most cases and so the Lawn Mower owner is subjected to fate when dealing with it.
That is not the predicament I faced, my lawn had two issues, first I’m an early riser and two, I had these dew worms on my lawn! When talking of early rising, what I mean is that my lawn mowing job was preferably done in the mornings.
I used to own one of the best models of | and it was working just fine. However, this is not one of the easiest undertakings as the lawn mowing in the morning is bound to attract considerable amount of dew into the motor.
While this is so, the dew worms on the other hand had started burrowing through several sections of the lawn. I had little information about them except that one of my friends told me that these are just interested in eating a way trash on the lawn.
I tried my best to keep the trash away but the problem persisted, I was at a loss. Someone came to my rescue, watering the lawn was the best medicine for these worms. I could ensure that the lawn was well watered at every instance but all this went to naught.
Mowing had to go on!
The size of the lawn I own, does not allow for any form of laziness on my part, I love my lawn so much and so I had to proceed with mowing it each and every fortnight. Apart from having this good feel, the serene environment it gives to my home is rather electrifying.
Because of the two fold attacks, I tried as much to mow my lawn when the grass was a bit dry to eliminate the effect of water which was already having a toll on the Lawn Mower. I could however not manage to keep up by drastically changing my normal routine, I made an assumption.
However, each time I took the Lawn Mower for check ups, the visible sighs that the motor was dying away was quite obvious, the water drops had affected it. This is not to forget the Lawn Mower blades which were ever getting blunt.
Because the dew worms are known to burrow through soil, they made mounds of soil on the lawn which eventually developed high enough to let the Lawn Mower pass. This was not good for my operations.
My Lawn Mower at one point failed to work completely and as usual I took it to the technician for check up. The eventual effect from the prognosis of my technician was that the mower had in fact collected enough soil within it, the size of the human fist.
I was not one of the bemused kinds; I tried to prod the technician into giving me some explanation as to what was the matter with my electric Lawn Mower. The explanation was simple, the electric current and water are two things which are unlikely to agree!
It is simple; the dew drops had the effect on the eventual break down of the electric Lawn Mower. However, it was the collection of the diverse mounds by the dew worms which killed the whole thing as the motor had become weak, yet it was subjected to work under a lot of duress, it caved in, I lost it.
What I did afterwards
I was not happy to lose my lovely electric Lawn Mower at all, especially considering the cost of purchasing a new one, which was staring me in the eye. My first reaction was to find away at how I could get my lawn mowed without having to do it in the morning.
The second act was to visit the local animal health officer who came and dealt with the burrowing dew, they were all gone in a huff. As for the management of my lawn, I hired a professional lawn management form to take over my operations at the farm, with lawns included.

Spraying the lawn occasionally is also an important element in keeping it healthy and guarding against all possibilities of dew worm attacks on it. In essence, the whole thing boils down to proper lawn management.
