BSTRACT The need for the maintenance of lawns through cutting and trimming cannot be overlooked in sporting fields, residential houses, hotel, hospital and others. Furthermore; some lawns are specially bred for the sake of aesthetic. However, in some places like hospitals, special health care and rehabilitation centers, the natural beauty of the environment is believed to contribute to a great deal in aiding the recovery and healing the mentally and physically challenged patients. This contributory effect on the lawn has made lawn care to be involved with a great admiration. An inverter powered lawnmower was designed and constructed using the locally available materials such as a 2KVA inverter, prime mover (electric motor) of a rating of 370W, a 60Amphour battery and a 12 Volt battery. It is of advantage over the existing ones because it uses no fuel consumption, it emits no smoke which causes air pollution, and it has no internal combustion engine to drive the motor of the machine. This lawn mower was designed to mow for a period of two (2) hours and the discharged battery can be recharged with the aid of the inverter when connected to an A.C supply. This study showed that this type of machine is most suitable in Nigeria because no fuel is needed to power this machine. The unit is simple, light and easy to maneuver.
