Grass cutting can be a daunting task for many who either don't have the time or suitable machinery. Few home owners can justify spending large amounts of money on professional quality mowers and clients in the commercial sector usually don't have the resources to have grounds maintenance done in-house.

In these situations it would make sense to employ the services of a professional company such as Eco Garden Maintenance to mow your lawn or grassed areas. By using skill and various professional quality mowers Eco Garden maintenance can effectively and efficiently cope with any situation presented, leaving a highly pleasing appearance which is simply unattainable to most. A lawn can be an attractive and relaxing area of your garden used by your friends, family and pets whilst being an asset to your home.

Mowers come in many guises but one does not perform the best in all situations. Grassed areas have different purposes which determines how they are managed and thus which type of mower will give the best result in the most efficient manner. Manicured lawns require a mower which will cut low enough and minimise ground disturbance. Stripes are king in this situation so a cylinder or rotary mower with heavy roller should be used.

Utility lawns are best tackled with a rotary mower, either with roller or four wheeled. Stripes can still look very impressive in this situation. Mulch mowing can also be utilised and has many advantages such as feeding the lawn organically and not having any lawn clippings to dispose of.

Rough areas of grass that are not particularly formal are usually cut with four wheeled mowers which can cope with the bumpy ground. A powerful high capacity machine is needed here to cope with large amounts of growth and to cover the often large areas of land involved. Mulching is usually preferred in this situation because of the large amount of grass clippings to dispose of if they are collected.

Areas of coarse weeds, brambles and wild flower meadows are too challenging for most mowers so in this instance Eco Garden maintenance would opt for the use of a brushcutter, flail mower or sickle bar mower which are ideally suited to deal with these types of area.

    Completed first cuts on most lawns although the weather has been a major hindrance. Thinking back to last spring, what a difference. I had cut all lawns twice by now! Roll on the warm weather.
