Grass Cutting and Lawn Mowing

A well-kept lawn is important for a good-looking garden.  We provide a regular lawn mowing and scarifying service which includes all the edges looking neat and tidy.  We use excellent mowers (Hayters) with rollers, so you can see great results (see photos for example).

We usually suggest two weekly cuts and we have mowers with adjustable blade heights – depending on the seasons.  We can either provide a mulch cut which returns the clippings to the lawn, this helps maintain the fertility of the grass or we can collect the clippings for you for a small fee.  We mow up and down in straight lines to create a tidy and good-looking finish.  We can also strim larger areas of grass which is difficult to mow.

What our clients say ..

The Mindful Gardener team transformed my garden. I’m delighted. It was tired and overgrown but I had no idea what to do to spruce it up. They came in with the idea of making it a haven for wildlife all year round, stripping back and planting new shrubs and flowers. I can’t wait to see what it looks like in spring.

Kate brought ideas, knowledge and inspiration to our new ‘blank canvas’ of a garden, and then worked with us to design the finished article. She blended plant colours, types and characteristics and set them out for our review before planting. We’re now excited the rain has come to help them grow into what we hope and expect will be a sea of colour, and many scents, to both look wonderful, and to attract the birds, bees and butterflies. Thank you Kate for your hard work, ideas, and speedy service
