Mowing and Lawn Care
Lawn care; A greener solution for you grass cutting needs
A beautiful healthy green lawn can make all the difference in a garden and key to this is regular mowing at the correct height. I have two powerful Stiga mowers (if one breaks down, the other is at hand), which mulch or pick up, depending on the clients wishes. The mulching option chops the grass up into little tiny bits and lays them back down in the lawn. It has several benefits;
- It is quicker (therefore cheaper for the client!). It is often quoted as being 30% quicker as there is no need to stop and empty the grass bag.
- The grass is returned to the soil, broken down by the earth worms into nutrients to feed the grass again, reducing the need for fertilsers on your lawn. It is far more sustainable as nothing is removed from the system. It increases the soil moisture retention capacity and there are more earth worms for the birds to come and eat from your lawn!
Depending on regularity of mowing the clippings are often only visible for a couple of days, but of course I can always pick up the grass as well.
Keep your garden in tip top shape with a regular mow, strim and blow maintenance service. After strimming all the edges and mowing, I blow any remaining grass clippings off any paths, drive ways, etc, leaving a very clean feel.
I hold my PA1 / PA6 pesticides/herbicides spraying ticket and always carry organic seaweed based lawn fertiliser and moss killer around with me. Scarifying, top dressing to improve drainage, re-seeding, applying lawn sand and other lawn based products are all services I can offer.
