Advice on mulching mowers

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…

3D garden design software search...

Hi All,I've been using Realtime Landscaping Pro 2018 software for a few months now, and am discovering its limitations. In some ways it is really good, and great value for money. It falls down a bit with creating varying ground levels, but it is also possible that I have not mastered that part yet. But the biggest issue for me is the lack of appropriate 3D models of plants. I find myself customising their 3D models, which is ok to a point, but there are not enough basic model options. Like no…
