"Cheers dan. I didn’t even know there was different nozzles. 
The wider spray ones sound like they could be good. I’ll order some and give them a go. "

"Nozzles have to be matched to your machine output, plus slightly wider ones tend to work better than very narrow ones, although they won't clean the joints quite as deeply. "

Hedges/Shrubs against walls

Hi Guys,I have been cutting domestically now for about 6 years I'm based in northern ireland  but been thinking of buying another ride on mower.I was wondering what the thoughts are on zero turn mulching mowers and whether there is more established grass cutting firms that use mulching mowers to cut domestic gardens on a fortnightly basis? Whether this is possible? I tend to think it may not be as growth rate might be too great for this type of mower.Also been looking around at kubota high tip…
