the first cut
Getting the first cut right is essential. Cut just the right amount, and you will stimulate thick, healthier grass. Cut too deep and you'll stunt its growth.
It's time to cut in spring once your grass is 5-8cm tall and your lawn is nice and dry. Set your lawnmower to remove just the top 2cm to get the best results.find your perfect lawnmower
