Your lawn mower is a surprisingly versatile tool. Sure, it cuts the grass, and that might be all you really need it to do. However, the right lawn mower attachments turn your mower into a machine that can handle a long list of yard maintenance tasks. They’ll save you from hours of raking and make sure your yard stays green year after year.

Before buying an attachment, there are a few considerations to take into account. First, know what fits your mower. Riding mowers have more options for attachments, while you’ll find a limited selection for zero-turn mowers. Many attachments have a universal-fit hitch, which means you can hitch the attachment to mowers, lawn tractors and other yard machines.

Second, how big is your yard? If you’ve got an acre of grass to take care of, you’ll get more use out of some attachments versus a home sitting on a small city lot. However, if you’re looking to clear snow from your driveway, then a snow blower or blade attachment might be a worthy investment.

There are a variety of lawn mower attachments, from dethatching to leaf pick up, so we found the best options to whip your lawn into shape.
