Lawn Care : Mowing your Lawn

Mowing your Lawn

Regular mowing is essential for the long term condition of your lawn and it's important to understand a few simple tips.

It is important not to mow your lawn too short. This can put your lawn under extreme stress and allows weeds to establishment easily.

Spring and summer mowing will be required every 7-14 days for all lawn / grass varieties.

In the cooler months warm season grasses i.e. Sir Walter Buffalo, Nullarbor Couch and Eureka Kikuyu will require very minimal mowing.

Sir Walter Buffalo and RTF Fescue is best mown at a height of 40mm - 60mm.

Nullarbor Couch and Eureka Kikuyu is best mown at a height of 20mm - 30mm.

Mowing New Instant Lawn

To give your new grass the best chance of life do not mow your lawn until the roots have fully established.

Your first mow can usually take place 3-4 weeks after laying. Always ensure that the mower blades are sharp to prevent damage to the leaf. When mowing only remove one third of the leaf blade, no more.

Mowing Lawn Under Trees

Your grass will keep in better shape if you keep it slightly longer under shaded areas. Leaving a few clippings behind can also help under trees and we recommend not to mow more than a third of the grass leaf.

Mowing TIP: Always mow with sharp blades, mow when dry to avoid scalping.
