How much do you charge for lawnmowing?
It is hard to answer without viewing the lawn in person due to a range of factors such as size, difficulty/complexity, cut frequency, type of lawn, lawn condition, and accessibility for the mower, as well as any additional requirements. The best way to get an accurate price is for me to view your lawn and give you a quote. There’s no charge and its absolutely obligation-free!
What areas do you service?
We work in suburbs which are adjacent to each other: Willetton, Canning Vale, Harrisdale, Southern River, Riverton, Bull Creek, Leeming and surrounds. We also like to keep customers as close to each other as possible on any given day. This allows us not only to be efficient (which keeps costs down), but also to be very reliable and come on the scheduled day. Less time in transit means less chance of a day blowing out so that we can’t get to your lawn! It helps with providing the best possible service that we can offer. A tight lawn round also means that often we are able to satisfy urgent requests on short notice too!
How often should a lawn be mowed?
Simply put, as often as possible! The more often a lawn is mowed, the less thatch build-up it will have and the better it will look, more of the time. Usually 2-weekly in summer and 4 or 5-weekly in winter keeps your lawn in order. This all depends, of course, on how much water and fertilizer it is receiving.
I think I have lawn beetle, what should I do?
Lawn beetle is not a major cause of lawn damage. This is one of the biggest myths out there. In most cases lawn beetles don’t do the damage they are blamed for. Lawn beetles in a well cared-for lawn are actually beneficial! They are nature's way of aerating the soil beneath your lawn. If your lawn is getting enough sunlight and water, it reproduces at a faster rate than lawn beetles can attack. Often the patches of unhealthy lawn that lawn beetle is blamed for are simply due to lack of water.
My lawn looks dry in patches even though I water regularly, what do I do?
The first thing to do is check your reticulation for any blockages or broken sprinklers. With automated systems often problems are not discovered until the lawn already begins to die off. If your lawn is receiving enough water but is still looking brown in patches, it may mean you have beetle infestation, a fungal infection or perhaps it’s not receiving enough sunlight. If a lawn has substantial thatch build-up, it doesn’t allow new growth and roots to penetrate or grow in these areas.
What lawn-building or fertilizer product should I put on my lawn?
As a general rule, any product that contains a soil wetting agent to help your lawn retain its own water better, is the way to go. Depending what you are after, some are purposely designed to add 'colour' to your lawn, while others focus more on the wellbeing of your lawn rather than just the looks. There are many products out there. Most of them will do the job, so it mainly comes down to your preference.
