Saves Time

Hiring someone to perform lawn mowing can save time because you will not have to worry about cutting your own grass. The amount of time saved can be tremendous when you consider that lawn care professionals typically have top-of-the-line equipment that gets the job done quickly and easily. Not only will you save time cutting grass, but you also will not have to maintain lawn equipment, make endless trips to the petrol station for fuel or rake and clean up your yard afterwards. When you consider all these factors, hiring a lawn mowing company makes practical sense.

Benefits of Lawn Mowing

There are plenty of reasons to consider hiring a lawn mowing service and a few of them include:

  • Saves valuable time that could be used to perform other more important tasks
  • Job will look professionally done since precisely the right equipment will be used
  • No need to invest in expensive lawn care equipment yourself
  • Work can be scheduled at intervals that fit your needs and budget
  • Won’t have to store petrol fuel to use in lawn equipment
  • Makes your home or business look well kept. This can increase traffic to your business while also helping your home maintain its value
  • Having grass cut on a regular basis deters intruders who might want to prey on buildings that look as though they are unoccupied

Push Mowers vs. Ride-On Mowers

Your lawn mowing company may use either of these tools, but they’re both beneficial in their own unique ways. For example, a push mower is ideal for smaller lawns that require quite a bit of manoeuvring, or for small strips of lawn like those commonly found between fences and pavements. Push mowers are also safer for use on steeper gradients. On the other hand, a tractor mower (or ride-on mower) is best for large, open lawns without many hills or obstacles. This allows your lawn mowing service to finish the job more quickly, saving you time and money.

Things to Consider

When choosing a lawn mowing specialist, it can be a good idea to ask for references from other satisfied customers. You may also want to know what type of equipment they use if you have an extremely large garden that can’t be easily taken care of with ordinary equipment. Some companies adjust the price of their services based upon the current cost of petrol, so you should find out how long an estimate will be good for as well.

Lawn Mowing Design

If you have a large, open front garden that is visible to passers-by, lawn design may be quite appealing to you – and eye appealing for everyone who sees your home, too. The term “lawn mowing design” refers to creating designs in the cut grass by moving the mower in alternating directions. While the most common design involves stripes, it’s possible to create a checkerboard pattern, a spiral, or any other pattern you can imagine. While not all companies provide it, some specialise in it. If this is something you’re interested in, be sure to include it in your quote request.

Factors that Influence the Cost

Lawn mowing can vary based upon the size and terrain of the plot being mowed. If there are lots of objects in the garden, this could also increase the price since a garden strimmer might need to be used around them. How often the yard is mowed plays a part because yards that are mowed more frequently won’t be as tall and will therefore be easier to cut. Some lawn care companies also provide landscaping services, and this could also add to the overall bottom line.

Reasons to Hire a Professional

If you don't have time to mow your own lawn, it may be tempting to hire a neighbourhood kid who's interested in making a few pounds. This can be quick and cost-effective, but it may not be the best way to keep your lawn in good health. Cutting your grass too short, or even mowing during the wrong time of day, can cause your grass to die. That's why it's important to hire a seasoned professional; he or she will take all the necessary steps to ensure your lawn looks its best each day.

Your lawn mowing questions answered

The best thing to remember is to keep your lawnmower blade sharp, and to mow high and often. Dull blades will shred grass instead of cutting it, and cutting off just the tip of the blade makes your grass much healthier and denser.

Most lawn mowing services will charge a flat fee by the acre. This will vary from company to company, but most will charge between £15 and £25 per acre. Some will offer discounts if they are contracted to continue cutting the lawn for a season or a year.

This is something that should be completed on an as-needed basis. Lawns will need to be mowed more often during the rainy season will go dormant and not require mowing during the cold Winter months.

Cylinder mowers trim your grass with a circular blade that acts more like a pair of scissors, so it can be healthier for the grass than the rotary blade of the power mower that tears more than it cuts. It does require a bit more effort to mow with a cylinder mower though.

Make sure your blades are well sharpened, and that all debris is picked up before you begin. You may also need to manually adjust your blades higher or lower, depending on how steep your terrain is.

There's no right or wrong time of day to mow your garden. However, you should avoid mowing when the lawn is wet as this can clog your mower. You should also avoid cutting the grass too short, as this may kill it.

Almost every professional lawn mowing company brings its own equipment to your home or business, either in a pickup truck or large van. Because you’re paying the company for its time and service, that company does not expect you to provide the mower, trimmer, and other equipment.

There are numerous cases in which homeowners call for one-time mowing services. If you’ll be away on holiday, or if you’re simply too busy to tend to your lawn for the week, it’s easy to hire a company to take care of things for you. They’ll work with you on a one-time basis, and if you choose, you can set up a lawn mowing schedule, as well. The choice is always yours.
