This tool will help you estimate the time it will take to mow your lawn based on its size and your mowing speed.

## Mowing Calculator Instructions

This calculator helps you estimate the time required to mow a rectangular lawn. Enter the length and width of the lawn in feet. Then, provide the speed of your mower in feet per minute and the efficiency of your mowing (as a percentage). You can also specify how much overlap you have per pass in inches.

### How to Use the Mowing Calculator

- Enter the dimensions of the lawn: length and width in feet.
- Input the mowing speed in feet per minute.
- Provide the efficiency percentage. This accounts for factors like obstacles and turning around.
- Specify the overlap per pass in inches.
- Click the “Calculate” button to get the result.

### How It Calculates Results

The calculator computes the effective mowing width based on the width of the lawn and the overlap per pass. Then it calculates the total area of the lawn that needs to be mowed. The total mowing time is determined by dividing the total area by the adjusted speed (speed multiplied by efficiency).

### Limitations

- This calculator assumes the lawn is a perfect rectangle.
- The efficiency parameter is a rough estimate and may not perfectly match real-world conditions.
- It doesn’t account for changes in terrain or additional obstacles.
