Have you considered a Mulching Mower?
Mulching mowers help you attain a lush, green and healthy lawn quickly
The current trend in lawnmowing is mulching instead of collecting. Working without a collection bag saves time and money, as mulch provides a continuous, natural fertilising method. In addition, the sustainable layer of nutrients protects the lawn from drying out and the effects of heavy rain. More and more professional and modern lawn care services trust mulching mowers for a perfect lawn.
How does mulching work?
The mulching blade cleanly cuts high grass and simultaneously generates an airflow that uniformly whirls the cuttings in the mulching unit. The mulching blade’s multiple cutting edges chop and mulch the grass several times. The tiny grass particles then disappear into the turf, forming a layer of natural fertiliser. Mulching is sustainable and saves time.
How to mulch correctly
For optimum results, mow your lawn every 10-14 days and mow in dry conditions. The golden rule is mow a maximum of a 1/3 of the grass length. For overgrown lawns, mowing is recommended in 2 stages. The first pass at the highest level (80-90mm) and the second pass at a medium level (50-70mm). Where the grass is particularly dense and thick, mow the area slowly. Also always mow counter clockwise from the outside to the inside.
The advantages of mulching at a glance:
Time savings of 30% are possible with modern mulching mowers
Up to two tons of grass cuttings accumulate on a 1,000 m² lawn area every year. These cuttings must then be disposed of. Spare yourself not just the cost of this process but up to 30% more time by mulching rather than collection bag mowing.
Mulch mowing is fertilising naturally – less consumption of fertiliser
Fertilise less frequently and with lower costs. The fine mulch continues to fertilise naturally, supplying the lawn with nutrients over a longer period of time.
Fresh, healthy green – for a perfect ornamental lawn
A fine layer of mulch protects the soil from drying out, so that even in hot summer periods the lawn does not become spotty.
