Grass Cutting can be carried out to suit your requirements either as a fortnightly or weekly service during the grass cutting season.
There is nothing quite like the smell of a freshly cut lawn, or the sight of a deep green lawn with new stripes created by using a sharp and efficient cylinder mower. But there is also the frustration at not having the time to maintain your lawn as you would like, or the fact that it decides to rain during the only hour in the week that you have available to do the task, or even if you are raring to go, the sun is shining and then your mower decides it will not start. This is where Bosworth’s Garden Care team will help you out.
Our team use only the best equipment, maintained regularly to give the best finish. We generally use a rotary mower for the majority of our grass cutting and a cylinder mower in specific situations where a fine finish is required. The rotary mower has a single blade sharpened at each end which, as the name suggests, rotates rapidly cutting the grass and throwing the clippings backwards into the grass collecting box. This type of mower is relatively easy to maintain as it only has one blade to sharpen, it is generally lighter than a cylinder mower as it does not have a heavy roller and also generally has a wider cutting width making it more efficient at cutting lawns. The rotary mower is also better than a cylinder mower at tackling lawns that have been left to grow too tall and is also better at cutting damp or wet grass. A cylinder mower is superb at leaving a fantastic stripy finish, it cuts using a cylinder which is generally located on the front of the mower and has several blades spiraling around the cylinder, there is usually a heavy single roller on the back of the mower in place of wheels, this roller is ‘the bit that creates the stripes’. The cylinder mower can only usually be used once a lawn has been maintained to a certain standard, and will not perform well on long and/or wet grass, but just as you wouldn’t use a Ferrari to pull a trailer, we will only use the right piece of equipment for the job at the time.
Our service will include edging the lawn, either with a mechanical edging tool or with traditional lawn edging shears to create a nice crisp finish. Grass clippings can be removed from site, or added to your own compost bin.
