Spring lawn cutting advice

Correct mowing will make the difference between a “so-so” lawn and a great one. These few simple steps make a big difference in your lawns appearance, encouraging a thicker sward and deeper colour.

  • A light topping of the grass is always better than a severe “hacking”;
  • Regular cutting requires less effort;
  • Keep trimming the edges for that smart professional look.

Wet Grass -see our helpful hints at the end of the article.

Why raise the cutting height?

  • When you mow, you'll mow higher up the leaf where it is drier;
  • This will help especially on clay soils;
  • The mower will ride on a cushion of grass with fewer muddy tracks;
  • Longer grass will grow more slowly;
  • The grass will use more energy in growing roots;
  • The extra leaf will improve health and disease resistance.

Recommended cutting heights

Your lawn appreciates adjusting the cutting height throughout the year, however, if you just want one setting for the entire season use the highest recommendation.

Mowing Wet Grass - Top Tips

  • Dry off the lawn first: use a length of hose or brush and drag across the lawn, this will disperse any water down into the soil;
  • Mow in the afternoon: which gives the grass leaves a chance to dry;
  • Choose a windy day: it will assist in drying the lawn;
  • Cutting height: put the mower on the highest setting;
  • Clean the mower: grass left from a previous cuts attracts wet grass like a magnet;
  • Mower type:A rotary mower will be easier and better than a cylinder mower.
