A lawn mower is a machine which can be used to cut a lawn to an even length.


Lawn mowers were among Arthur Weasley's junk which escaped to the Ottery St Catchpole forest.

A lawn mower is found in the Muggle Studies classroom at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Arthur once helped Ludo Bagman's brother, Otto, by smoothing over a problem involving a lawn mower enchanted with magical powers. As thanks, Ludo got Arthur prime tickets to the 1994 Quidditch World Cup.[1]

During the summer of 1997, the Muggle next-door neighbour to the Dursleys was using a lawn mower and was shocked when Harry Potter yelled.[2] Later in the same day, as Harry was having a conversation with Vernon Dursley regarding the Order of the Phoenix's plan to protect the Dursley family, the neighbour's lawn mower stalled.[3]
