Trialing a new mower

We wanted to experiment with cutting the turf early in the season, compared to when we would normally cut it in the Autumn. We decided to trial a new mower, to find out if it could manage to cope with the maturity of the species in our Wildflower Turf at this time of the year.
The flowers and grasses were about 760mm in height and the new mower performed really well. The mower also collects the cuttings as it mows, which saves time by eliminating the need to go back afterwards removing the thatch separately. By removing the thatch we reduce the nutrient levels of the soil, to encourage wildflower  growth.
