Is it possible to establish and then maintain a good looking healthy lawn by making fortnightly visits?
Im hoping that my customers lawns are looking so poor due to the lack of rain and not down to me.
If you have fortnightly calls, how are these lawns looking?
Most of my calls are fortnightly and still looking great.
I always try not to mow too short when the weather is hot and dry or the lawns do suffer. They quickly get that dry brown/yellow look but that is also relevant to how much moss is in the lawn. The Moss dries out and goes brown.
Saying that though around July and August I do have to do some lawns weekly.
it works most of the time well it depends on the growing conditions most of mine a fortnightly
All my lawn cuts are fortnightly, as above they all look fine,
and havent really got time for weeklies
all my lawns ar cut every two weeks and they all look great the only time i have problems is when we get prolonged periods of wet weather the grass gets that bit longer when this happens i tend to cut it at a level up from their normal cut and bring it back down in the dry periods
I only do fortnightly's and a care home I've a contract for is a monthly. I usually raise my blade in dry weather on the fortnighly cuts.
I must admit the monthly cut can look a bit of a dog after four weeks, but the customer is not willing to pay for anymore visits so that's that.
