| Tips to Consider When Using a Landscaper to Cut Your Lawn

Are you looking at your brand-new garden in Maidstone and can’t decide where to start?

When and How Much to Cut?

Consider your hair routine. Regular trimming results in thicker, healthier strands and minimises damage. The same methods apply to lawn care. Consistent cutting improves the density of the grass, making it harder for weeds to grow and moss to accumulate. Ideally, you should keep your lawn trimmed to between 25mm (1”) and 50mm (2”). 

This is applicable to domestic garden maintenance, and to commercial grounds maintenance.

Our landscapers suggest following the one-third rule. Don’t trim any more than a third of the grass in one go. If you keep cutting without giving the grass time to recover, you could end up with the following problems:

To support our garden design and garden patio installation services in Maidstone, our landscapers can also lay new turf or, if you prefer, seed the existing terrain. Fresh lawn care isn’t difficult. Just bear in mind the blades require about a month to settle and grow after germination. Because they are only new sprouts, they won’t have had the time to acclimatise to their surroundings and become a little hardier. 

You’ll also damage your lawn if you walk across it too early. 

We recommend allowing the new blades of grass to grow approximately 25mm (1”) above the recommended height before cutting your lawn for the first time. 

For public areas, schools and developments, and as part of our commercial grounds maintenance services in Maidstone and the surrounding areas, TCS Landscapes always follows the one-third rule.
