Mowing

Cutting two strips around the edge of turf and then cutting in straight lines opposite to this, alternating the pattern very other mow if possible, is normally the best technique. Cut week by week amid the growing season to ensure you are not getting rid of more than 1/3 of the leaf cutting edge at a time.

Sharpen mower blades at least once per season. Checking oil after every cut and changing oil every season will add life to your mower. A good mower will cut wet turf and pick up clippings better. Consider a mulching mower, it permits much of the water and nutrients in the clippings to return to the soil, accordingly reducing the need for watering and fertilizing.

Edging

Add-ons For Irrigation Systems

A well implemented irrigation system is a key ingredient for a healthy landscaped garden. An irrigation system is an artificial application of water to the land or soil using a water pipe system. By using irrigation systems you can save up to 50% of your water bills. There are two types of irrigation sprinklers systems; manual and automatic that can be fitted into your home or business. An automatic sprinkler system uses a timer to maintain a healthy beautiful garden, which you can enjoy with your family and friends. When it is properly installed and maintained an automatic sprinkler system will help. A manual sprinkler system requires for you to physically switch the system on and off.

Irrigation systems are beneficial for every household. They will save you time by watering the lawn independently whenever you require it to. They also save water; an automatic system uses less water than watering by hand. Lastly an irrigation system will save you some money; your water bill will be lower and the plants will live longer. Irrigation systems are also beneficial in that they assist in the growing of plants, maintenance of landscapes, and re-vegetation of disturbed soils in dry areas and during inadequate rainfall.

Water backup systems can be linked to your irrigation system; with water restrictions in place or when there is no water this backup system will come in handy and will keep your plants growing. These back up systems can also save you a lot of money when linked to a borehole that uses rain water.

Rainwater harvesting is when you collect, filter, store and distribute rainwater. This water can be used for irrigation as an emergency supply of water or a complete off-the grid backup system. It can be stored in water tanks or reservoirs which will come in handy when the time is right.  

There are various irrigation accessories you can purchase that can make your life much easier and ensure your plants live longer. They include but are not limited to:

  • Valves, connectors and nozzles
  • Taps, hose clamps, saddles and connectors
  • Insert fittings, poly threaded fittings and compression fittings
  • Full Flow fittings
  • Poly pipe LDPE / HDPE
  • PVC and galvanised standpipes
