After servicing put your lawnmower in a place where it is covered to keep the elements and rodents away from it.

Next season when you wish to put back in service, simply install fresh fuel and restart the engine. It will be normal for the engine to smoke for the first few minutes as the lubricating oil in the cylinder is burned up.
