We understand the importance of caring for a lawn, and green spaces, all year round. Grass can easily get tired, worn out and infested with weeds if not cared for properly. It doesn’t take much, only a sustained period of warm weather mixed with some rainfall and grass can suddenly appear rough and out of control.
Glendale’s highly skilled operatives are trained to use the very best commercial mowers on the market, along with the latest grass maintenance equipment and technology, including robotic and battery operated machinery. No scale of work is too small or too big, the finer detail after a grass cut is taken care of by trimmers and hand tools and for larger grass areas such as airfields, country parks, paddocks, and sports pitches, tractors equipped with high capacity mowing decks provide a versatile mowing solution. This means that our teams can maintain a grass space for you to be proud of, whether large, small, flat, inclined, lined with trees and shrubbery or filled with features such as water fountains, monuments, and statues.
Mowing a lawn isn’t just cosmetically pleasing, there are also less obvious benefits to be had from having the grass cut regularly. Any Gardener will tell you that looking after a lawn can be extremely time consuming. Pristine lawns require devotion, dedication and patience. By trusting Glendale with your lawn, you ensure that it will be maintained to an exceptional standard without having to worry about being actively involved in its management.
Understanding the needs of our clients is of utmost importance to us at Glendale. Our qualified grass cutting teams have a wealth of knowledge and understanding when it comes to caring for green spaces. Their experience and know-how will deliver an environment that you can be proud of.
Lawns can be cut in a variety of ways depending on its usage or the demands placed upon it. The reward of presenting a flawless piece of turf is very special and our skilled teams pride themselves on the quality of their work.
Did you know? A mulch style cut can save up to 60% of time compared to other cuts. Not all lawns are suited to this style of cut and it can take a few cuts before this cut looks its best. However, cutting your grass often and to a very short length will improve your lawn’s appearance greatly.
The height that grass is cut changes throughout the year. Grass should be cut slightly longer at the beginning and towards the end of the cutting season. Cutting grass through winter is usually unnecessary as the growth rate of grass slows down considerably. If the weather is milder and the grass is still growing, a ‘rougher’ cut could be suitable.
Although it is possible to achieve a presentable standard with only a little intervention, the benefits of a fully sustained, long-term maintenance and care program are obvious to see when you come across a well-kept lawn. Ideally, a lawn needs a comprehensive, rolling year-on-year schedule to assure its health for the future. Lawns face a multitude of challenges and changes throughout a calendar year, and adapting your care package around this is important.
Glendale will mow your grass at the best time. Not just at a convenient time for you, but also for the health of the lawn. This is because grass needs time to grow and recover after winter. The optimal time to cut grass is when it’s dry, as this garners the best results, however in the UK this isn’t always possible. Although you can cut grass whilst wet, cutting grass when it’s too wet can have a detrimental effect on the lawn and turn any green space into a mud bath.
The length to cut grass changes throughout the year, with a lawn ‘preferring’ a shorter cut in the dryer, summer months and a longer mow in the autumn. By cutting the grass to an adequate length throughout the year, you ensure that each blade receives an equal amount of resources from the soil.
Pairing this practice with the right treatment of a lawn and the use of seeds or fertilisers, where required, will really boost the health and appearance of your green space.
Although the use of fertilisers and lawn care chemicals is sometimes necessary, Glendale’s commitment to the environment and implementation of sustainable practices prohibit their unnecessary use. The reason being that overuse of chemical fertilisers can have a detrimental effect on soil, which in turn can hamper the health of the grass and fundamentally damage a lawn. With this in mind, Glendale’s grass cutting and maintenance teams will avoid using chemicals where possible and encourage natural grass growth through managed cuts and care.
