Is there an optimal height to cut the grass?
Each variety of turf has a recommended mowing height—ranging from 25 to 40mm—though we recommend only removing one-third of the grass at any one time. All too often, we come across properties with browning or dying grass. This is a direct result of cutting the grass too low. Be wary of the amount of shade cover and direct sunlight your grass gets as this affects the mowing height.
Do you offer seasonal fertilising?
Yes. We recommend you fertilise your lawn efficiently throughout the year to ensure it remains fresh and green as the seasons change. Winter and late autumn is the best time to feed and prepare your lawn for the forthcoming warmer months. We apply two rounds of fertiliser to ensure the grass has enough potassium intake—this increases plant cell health and structure.
My lease is coming to an end. Do you offer garden clean-up services?
Yes. We'll make sure your property manager is astonished with the results. When you're moving, finding time to tidy the garden is the least of your worries. We'll give your back and front yards a complete transformation by mowing the lawn, removing weeds, trimming shrubs, cleaning paths and clearing any waste or rubbish.
Do you use chemicals to remove weeds?
Yes. Though pulling weeds out, one-by-one, with your hands is effective, it's very time consuming. Contact us if you're considering using herbicides and poisons. These products should be handled by professionals so not to harm yourself and the surrounding flora and fauna.
How soon can I walk on a newly stained deck?
Usually within 3 to 4 hours is enough time to safely walk on the deck. Very high and low temperatures affect the setting process of a newly stained deck. It's best to avoid the heat when staining as it can dry too quickly, resulting in uneven coats and a rushed job. Conversely, staining a deck in the winter can cause the adhesive to fail. Avoiding the rain, wind, high humidity and direct sunlight is also recommended.
