Large-Scale & Commercial Turf Mowing in Perth
There is more to professional mowing and turf maintenance than just pushing a mower around when things start to look untidy.
In a commercial setting, whether that be a sports field, a school or an entertainment venue, managing the stress that an area of turf is put under, is the key to ensuring that it stays healthy and resilient, year in, year out.
What causes stress in turf
All plants are subject to stress caused by the weather, nutrient deficiencies and trauma to their structure, but few plants have more to cope with than lawn grasses.
Any time lawn grass is mowed, each individual leaf blade is put under stress from the cutting action or the process of having to regenerate what’s been taken off.
How to minimise stress
There is no way to avoid this stress altogether, but there are ways of minimising it.
Use a commercial-quality mower
A high-quality mower with consistently sharp blades, makes quick, clean cuts which puts less stress on each leaf blade every time the grass is mowed.
Take off a little at a time
By taking off less than one-third of the leaf blade area with every mow, the plant is left strong enough to withstand the impact of traffic and adverse weather conditions, particularly the heat of a West Australian summer.
Support the grass between cuts
Mowing alone doesn’t produce a great lawn, it’s just one of the elements that make up a professional lawn maintenance program. By supporting the grass plant between cuts with vertimowing, aerating and nutrient treatments, you’ll reduce the effects of stress in the long term.
Set and forget
We approach the problem of turf stress from several angles by only using well-maintained, professional-quality mowers, scheduling regular light cuts at the correct intervals and programming preventative maintenance services and treatments in between, as part of a year-long view.
