Tips for Mowing the Lawn
Mowing your lawn is essentially pruning. When you mow, you are actually increasing the thickness of the grass, decreasing the weeds and making grass growth denser. Find out what type of grass is in your garden, as each variety has a favoured mowing height.
To achieve a healthy lawn, we propose never trimming more than a third of the grass blade height at any time. If the grass is cut too short, it will become distressed, can turn brown and the lawn will suffer. Other tips to remember include mowing the grass when it’s dry, keeping the mower blades sharp and balanced and mowing your lawn frequently. These will keep your garden looking its best.
Choose the Right Mower
The most important tool for keeping a healthy and beautiful lawn is a lawnmower. We advise a walk-behind electric lawn mower or a petrol-powered model for small to medium-sized lawns as you will find them efficient and will transform forgotten grass into a pretty manicured lawn. For larger areas, a riding mower can do the trick as this comes without a lengthy cable cord and is easier to maneuver. Invest in grass cutters if you’ve got paving or decking — they are handy and will make it easier to reach those hard-to-get places.
Caring for Your Mower
Give your mower consistent maintenance to keep it working efficiently. An effective and simple way to clean it is to remove any caked-on grass from the underside. Just make sure you disconnect the spark plug when you are working with the underside of the mower!
