Question about Garden
If you have an electric PTO ( blade clutch ) you need no less than a 450 cranking amp battery...
you didn't mention the engine but I am assuming it has a B&S v twin ??? check and make sure you have battery voltage at the red wire at the voltage regulator... if yes, suspect it's bad, if not, look for a blown fuse

Replace the spark plug and retry.
If a new plug does not work push the spring button on the bottom of the carburetor to make sure fresh fuel is in the fuel bowl.
if this does not work remove the spark plug and squirt some light oil (like wd 40) right into the spark plug hole; roll the engine over slowly a couple times using the starter rope. put the plug back in and snap the plug wire in place. If the mower now starts after a couple pulls it means the rings are worn, replace the rings.

What is the model number of the mower? The picture posted by your question shows the 4 cycle Briggs & Stratton powered mower.
Did you run it for a long time? Five years would allow all gasoline to evaporate, but not the oil. You might have double the oil in the system.
If this is has the Lawn Boy OMC motor, excessive smoking can be caused by:
a worn crankshaft seal
a carbon-fouled muffler
carbon-fouled piston exhaust ports
a defective fuel primer circuit (sometimes disconnecting the primer button hose will stop the smoke ...carb work needed if this is it)
a fouled plug (causes incomplete combustion... and smoke)
weak reed valves (a constantly wet air filter is a sign of this)
