Do you have any questions about our services as STG lawn mowing Ballarat?
We will mow lawns in a way that suits you, “the customer”. Some like the grass cut short and others like the grass cut high. There are several pros and cons, but in the end, your vision of a perfect lawn is always our goal.
The Ballarat climate and mowing your lawn
As a lawn maintenance company, we often get a question about our services. Mowing, whipper snipping and general blow clean up is all part of the standard service. Ballarat can be quite a wet environment, and whether it’s sunny or raining, there is no place for a less than perfect job. In general, mowers designed to cut damp grass often get clogged up and leave big unsightly clumps everywhere.
Pro Tip: if you are trying to mow wet grass – try putting the rear height adjustment two clicks above the front. In other words, say the front adjustment is on one click (the lowest setting), then put the rear on three or even four. You allow for better airflow and less accumulation of grass within the mower housing around the blades.
Furthermore, we often do precisely this, and when the grass is very wet, we mow the lawn area twice. Our push mower is 30 inches wide – rather than the standard 18 to 22 inches. Allowing us to cut twice in the time it takes a regular mower to mow once.
Lawnmower maintenance makes a difference.
Keeping the cutting deck and general mower in good working order is paramount for a consistently good job. Failing engines can lack power and may reduce the rotations of the blades, making for an incomplete and untidy cut.
Let us talk about the blade condition. One of the essential items requiring maintenance is the blades. Sharp mower blades will reduce the jagged grass edges and, in turn, achieve better growth and thickening. At STG Lawn Mowing Ballarat, we sharpen our blades once a week in the winter/summer and every two or three days in the spring/autumn
Why do some lawns have so many weeds?
Even the most weed-infested lawns can be recovered and become great lawns with a bit of work. There are a couple of options to remove the large weeds.
- Use weed killer to spot poison the weeds.
- Manually remove the weed (hard work)
- Weedkiller on the entire lawn and start again
Some weeds are inevitable.
Even so, there are some things you can do to make your lawn look extraordinary. They are:
- Aerate the lawn with a manual or auto tool/machine
- Overseed the lawn (Spring and Autumn), which can overwhelm the weeds (if they aren’t too big)
- Fertilize the lawn with a good quality fertilizer (weed and feed granules can be ok, but don’t expect all the weeds to be gone)
- All of the above over time will bring your lawn back to life.
