Initial Mowing:

  • Should take place as soon as the lawn needs it.
  • Generally 1-3 weeks after laying.
  • All you need to do is just take the tips off.
  • Never take off more than a third of the leaf blade.

Ongoing Lawn Mowing:

  • Mowing can take place every 7-14 days during late spring and summer.
  • During autumn and winter mow every 2-5 weeks or as required.
  • The mowing height is best kept between 40 – 60mm throughout the year.

Mowing at a Higher Level will:

  • Improve drought tolerance and leaf softness.
  • Shade out weeds.
  • Keep the soil cooler, in turn saving water.

Lawn Mowing Tips:

  • 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.
  • Always remember never mow your ‘Sir Walter’ too low, about 50mm is ideal.
