Hints & Tips
You may well think that, being autumn, this is the time to hang up your hunters and sit back with a big mug of tea, watching ‘Strictly’ on catch-up and scoffing chocolate like your life depended on it.
Not so old fruit. Your onesie and maltesers sponsored ‘Gogglebox’ opportunity has not come just yet. Due to the weather being as it is, the grass is still growing and your lawn could still do with a bit of a trim. As I am sure you know, you may well need to stop regular mowing in November, depending on the temperature, so keeping it up now and having a last go won’t do any harm at all.
So how do we trim in autumn? Here are a small handful of carefully picked tips.
- Keep the cutting height high. That way you won’t be left with a ‘shorn’ lawn for the Winter and it will go on looking good until it eventually fades. Leaving it in the best condition you can for the cold wet season will make it stronger and more capable of dealing with the destructive affects of the cold season.
- If the lawn is a bit damp, cut less on each pass so you don’t get so many clumps in your collector
- Empty the grass collector more often so you can keep an eye on possible clumping as it will stop efficient collection.
- Be aware that if grass is clumping in the collector it is probably doing so under the cutting deck, and this could affect the mower’s all round performance. Stop half way through your cut, or if you feel there are problems, and with the mower COMPLETELY switched off, clear any clumps from the deck before you carry on. Be careful , if you need to tip it, which way you tip the mower if it is a petrol model. You don’t want fuel or oil going into the wrong places.
What you will need is a reliable and powerful lawn mower to carry out this task and you could do no better than looking at the fabulous range of Italian made, Oleo-Mac petrol mowers, all of which are popular with our customers for their value and quality, and many of which are massive superstar sellers for MowDirect with glowing reviews and fans across the country.
