What causes mower damage?
Mower damage is any damage that is caused to a lawn by a lawn mower. This can include things like:
- Tearing or scalping: This is when the mower cuts too low and tears the grass blades or scalps the surface of the soil.
- Browning or yellowing: This can happen if the mower blades are not sharp enough or if the mower is not properly adjusted.
- Digging or gouging: This can happen if the mower blades hit a rock or other object.
- Leaves or debris: This can happen if the mower is not properly maintained and the blades are clogged with leaves or debris.
What types of mower should I use?
When deciding on the most appropriate lawnmower for your lawn, various factors should be considered:
- The size of your lawn
- The shape of your garden
- How even the ground is
- If your lawn is on a slope
- Ease-of-use requirements
Depending on your space, you could have a rotary mower, a hover mower, or a cylinder mower. Our lawn care experts can advise you on the best mower for your space and requirements.
Remember to keep your mower well maintained by cleaning grass clippings from the underside after use. Keep the mower blades sharp to ensure a nice, clean cut – essential to the health of the grass! It is also important to clean and oil your mower regularly to prevent damaging your lawn.
How often should I mow my lawn?
Cutting your lawn regularly at the correct height will encourage healthier growth from root to tip. The frequency with which you should mow your lawn depends on a number of factors, including the type of grass you have and how much sun your lawn gets. However, as a general rule, you should mow your lawn at least once per week during the main growing seasons of April to June and September to October.
In the winter, you’ll only need to mow your lawn once a month or less but don’t be frightened to mow when the ground isn’t too waterlogged or frozen!

I would highly recommend Greensleeves
I would highly recommend Greensleeves who restored our baron-looking lawn which had been eaten away by chauffer grubs to a lush green fantastic lawn in a matter of months and we now have them every few months to keep our lawn looking lush and beautiful by treating it. Also lovely pleasant and helpful staff. Thank you Greensleeves.
Greensleeves have done a fabulous job…
Greensleeves have done a fabulous job on the lawn in our new house – turning it from a weed-infected patch of green to a true grass lawn. All in the space of a few months during initially very challenging weather conditions. Very happy with the progress that has been made – thank you.
Good service and good people!
I have been using Greensleeves for a few years now and I am pleased with both their products and service and they definitely know what they are talking about. They come on the day they say they will come, they execute their work quickly and efficiently and above all our lawn has really benefitted from their service.
We have only just started using Greensleeves but our impression of the company so far is very good. All contact with them has been dealt with promptly and professionally. The first lawn treatment was carried out as arranged today and my husband had a couple of queries regarding the lawn and these were answered in a friendly and informative manner.
This Company do a great job of keeping my lawn in tip-top condition. They are very knowledgeable and I feel very reasonable for a job that definitely requires a level of expertise. I initially tried treating my lawn myself but got nowhere near the results of Greensleeves. Would highly recommend.
