Gerry's Slashing & Mowing

Frequently Asked Questions

    Different types of lawns/grasses, locations, topographical conditions and environmental factors cause grass to grow at quite different rates. This changes with both seasons and weather conditions.
    As a guide the following may help:-
    In the growing seasons/conditions, say during Spring and early Summer the average time between cuts is 3 weeks. In the drier months of the hot periods of Summer, this may require a frequency of 3 – 5 weeks. In the cold and wet months of Winter the average cut frequency may be 6 or even 7 weeks. However often in this cooler and wet periods different types of grass, collectively termed Winter grass may shoot through, thereby requiring a more frequent cut pattern.

  • What is the best way to trim a hedge?
    Distinct from pruning trees, there are a number of factors to consider in order to get the optimal result from trimming hedges on your property. The first is the tools you use for the job: hedge clippers or power trimmers are highly recommended. These specially-designed hedge tools enable a cleaner and more consistent cut than shears or garden scissors. The next factor to consider is shape. A proper service should result in the bottom of the hedge being wider than the top to allow light to reach the bottom branches and plants. The final factor to keep in mind is density. The more dense the branches and plants are, the less sunlight will be able to get through. In order to help your tree look good and grow well, make sure you reduce the density to allow air and sunlight through.
  • What are the benefits of using organic fertilizers?
    Chemical fertilizers are a “quick fix” solution. They provide the nutrients grass needs, but at the expense of our water, soil and the living environment within the soil. Organic fertilizers are made from natural ingredients and break down slowly to produce a long lasting feeding for your lawn. Organic fertilizers are an all around better choice.
