What does a Lawn Mowing Service include?

A regular lawn mowing service in Melbourne includes mowing the lawn, taking care of weeds, collecting leaves, trimming, seeding, fertilising and aerating if needed. Depending on the size of your garden, the climate, the season and your specific needs, you can choose to hire lawn mowing services once every other week, once a month, or as needed. Most lawn care workers in Melbourne offer similar lawn care and maintenance packages, but you may also find special deals if you decide to hire them on a regular basis.

To determine what type of services you need, you’ll need to consider your budget, your schedule and your specific needs before hiring the person that’s right for the job.

Have in mind that not all lawn care providers use the same type of equipment and tools and offer the same services, at the same price.

Let’s take a look at some of the services that can be included in your package if you choose Handymate lawn care services in Melbourne.

In addition to lawn mowing, you may expect the following services:

Weed killing

Other than mowing the lawn, taking care of the weeds will help keep your lawn looking healthy and in pristine condition. This can be done with regular trimming and removal of weeds, as well as by using chemical or organic weed removing solutions.

Edging

Another service that can be included in the lawn mowing package is taking care of grass that’s growing in the garden beds, around the trees and along the walks and driveways.

Leaf blowing

Wet leaves can not only be slippery and pose a hazard to you and your family, but they can also pile up on top of your lawn and cause brown, dead patches to form.

Taking care of leaves that are covering your lawn or your driveway will make your yard look more appealing and will keep your lawn healthy and lush green.

Fertilising

The collected leaves can often be picked up and added to a compost pile which can, later on, be used as fertiliser. Other than leaves and food scrapings, you can use regular store-bought feeding to keep your grass strong and healthy or leave it up to the professionals to do it for you.

Seeding

If you have brown or yellow patches in your lawn, you can ask your gardening experts to help you out with that problem as well. They’ll have the necessary tools and equipment to get the job done right, so you can see positive results in no time. Other than simply seeding your lawn, they’ll also make sure all of the dead grass is removed, the area is well aerated, and there is a good ratio of seeds, fertiliser and water required for the seeds to germinate and grow.

Aerating

Regular aerating is also an essential step in taking care of a garden. By using specialised machines, your gardener will be able to make small holes in the ground so that water, air and nutrients can reach the roots and keep the lawn healthy and green.

Frequently asked questions

What is the best way to clean plant leaves?

The best and safest ways to clean plant leaves without damaging your plants is to spray or hose them off with lukewarm water, wipe them off with a damp cloth or use a soft brush to remove any dirt or dust. You can also spray them with soapy water and hose them off if they're too grimy.

What happens if you don't clean up leaves?

When you don't rake or clean up fallen leaves, they start to form clumps or layers which do not allow proper airflow to the grass and cause it to die off over time. These layers of leaves can cause your lawn to develop a lot of dead patches of grass and require you to reseed. Fallen leaves also serve as a cosy area for mice to hide in, as well as for mould and fungal diseases to develop and infest your lawn.

Are dead leaves good for soil?

Dead leaves can be a very useful natural resource that you can use to create your very own natural fertiliser or compost. This way, you can avoid using chemical fertilisers and nourish your lawn, providing it with proper moisture and nutrients from natural sources. You can either collect all leaves and set them aside to compost or you can run the lawnmower over them to mulch and spread them over the grass.

How do you speed up leaf decomposition?

To make leaves decompose faster, you can mulch them using your lawnmower and spread them evenly throughout the grass. You can also add them to your composting pile and add grass clippings, food waste or rotted manure onto it to accelerate the decomposition. Another very effective way to speed up the whole process is to make a worm composting bin and add red wiggler worms, which will break down everything faster and create compost that you can use to fertilise your lawn or garden.
