Mowing

Mower

The mowing blade should be sharp as a blunt blade will damage the grass.

Height

We recommend the lawn is cut a height of 25mm to 32mm (1” to 1 1/4”) and no more than a 1/3rd of the grass length should be cut any one time.

When

Traditionally the mowing season is between April and October but the lawn can be anytime of the year as long it is growing. Avoid cutting the grass if the ground is waterlogged or frozen.

How Often

During the growing season, the lawn should be cut at least once a week. The helps the healthy growth of the grass.

Watering

During the hot dry spells, it is recommended the lawn is water heavily at least once a week to penetrate the soil rather little and often as this promotes shallow root growth. The watering should start before the ground becomes too dry and the grass turns brown.
