Mowing tips / Lawn mowing and feeding
Your first mow is a special moment and should take place as soon as the lawn needs it, generally 1 to 3 weeks after laying and all you need to do is just take the tips of and remember whenever you are mowing never take off more than a third of the leaf blade. Mowing can take place every 7 to 14 days during late spring and summer. During autumn and winter about every 2 to 5 weeks or as required.
The mowing height is best kept between 40 to 60 mm throughout the year. Mowing at a higher level will improve drought tolerance and leaf softness as well as shade out weeds and keep the soil cooler, in turn saving water.
If weeds appear mow them off to prevent them from going to seed. Any type of mower is suitable for Sir Walter as long as the blades are sharp and always remember, never mow your Sir Walter too low – about 50mil is ideal.
