Mowing and Edging
If you've got a lawn then it needs regular mowing to look its best if you don't want it to stop being a lawn and go wild. Cared for properly and by professionals your lawn is more than a beautiful thing to look at; it's also a powerful statement about the pride you take in your property. That's as true for a much loved family home as it is for commercial property where customers, even without realizing it, will get their initial impression of your professionalism from the landscape that greets them as they arrive.
Mowing and Blowing
This is the standard technique for lawn mowing. First we mow the lawn to a preset height (see below) depending on the type of grass and the time of year. We use rotary mowers and walk behind mowers depending on the size and shape of your lawn and we take care to keep our blades perfectly sharpened and balanced because that ensure a perfect cut every time. Quality shows. Once we've run the mowers over the lawn we use blowers to clear the cut grass away for a clean and neat final appearance. Hence the term 'mow and blow'.
This probably the question we get asked more than any other and the answer is that while we can give you the general guidelines it does depend on a number of factors including your grass type, and the size and exposure of your lawn. The most popular routine is to have your lawn cut every week or ten days but micro climate affects the rate of grass growth and the best approach would be to inspect your lawn first in to give you a really accurate quote on the kind of care that your lawn would benefit from most.
We mow with precision which means we can cut to a set height depending on the appearance that you want but also the grass type of your lawn. There's still an idea doing the rounds that the best thing to do is cut grass short so that you don't have to mow it as often. In reality the right height is a precise issue as cutting it too short simply leave the lawn more prone to weed invasions, and more exposed to wind and weather. The optimal height is based on a proportion of the blade length, and every grass type has a different blade length so different grass types should be cut to different heights. Centipede grass, for example is cut much closer to the ground, right down to an inch in some cases while Buffalo grass can be cut to a four inch height. So let us take a look at your lawn and advise you on the height that's right for you.
Where your lawn meets concrete, flower beds, driveways, pavers, or water then you have an edge and the neatness and cleanliness of that edge will have a huge impact on how manicured your lawn looks. So we provide perfect edging services using both machine and hand operated edging tools for the very best effect.
