Why rain doesn’t stop play when we’re mowing your lawn

Summer is long gone, the migrating birds have been leaving these shores over the last few weeks and winter is already biting on the heels of autumn.  But as the weather turns colder and wetter, the good news is that the incoming rain won’t stop us when it comes to mowing your lawn.

No stopping us

You may have heard that you shouldn’t mow your lawn when it’s wet. That may be true for some mowers, but we use mulching mowers which are suited to nearly all weather conditions. The wide base means they can get a grip on wet terrain, the petrol motors give us more power to get up wet slopes than electric mowers, and there’s no risk from trailing electric cables in the rain.  We’ll mow through wet and frost –  only snow stops us from mowing.

No stripes here

Our mulching mowers have longer-term benefits for the health of your grass, especially in bad weather.  Although we set the blades slightly higher than with some conventional mowers, the actual cut is shorter, as the effect of stripes on a lawn is achieved by rolling longer grass flat.  Longer grass encourages the build-up of thatch (the white, dry grass at the base), which in turn encourages moss, which acts like a sponge in wet weather.  So our mulching mowers make your grass better able to cope with very wet weather.

So if you’re worried that we can’t make it when it starts raining, you know it’s okay as we’ll be there on time and ready to get going.
