Aim:

To cut grass plant leaves to reduce the height of a grass coverage.

Method:

Four main mechanical actions: -

  1. Cylinder
  2. Rotary
  3. Flail
  4. Strimmer

Can also be done by hand with shears.

Timing:

A turf surface can be mown anytime of the year as long as the surface is dry and frost free.

Effects of Incorrect Procedure:

  • Uneven surface levels.
  • Long cut grass prevents the ball travelling on the pitch surface.
  • Incorrect mowers setting rips the grass and allow disease attack, weeds to grow and leaf die back.

Equipment Selection:

  • Hand held strimmers.
  • Petrol pedestrian mower with cutting width 300 mm to 900 mm. Ride on mowers and tractor powered unit.

Practical Tips:

  • Best done when the grass leaf is dry for a clean cut.
  • Apart from mowing a pitch change the direction of cut each time.
