lawn care calendar
spring & summer
Pembrokeshire has it's own local climate that determines your lawn care and grass cutting diary!
Spring growth here starts in April, so an initial high cut is recommended, certainly by the middle of the month. As temperature and day length increases, plan a mowing frequency of around every 2 weeks until June.
June, July & August: Mow frequently throughout the summer months; weekly if possible and budget allows. Just a Mow can lower the cutting height to accommodate fortnightly mowing, but remember that a tighter cut will encourage moss, especially during extended wet periods.
If the weather is dry and hot, growth will slow markedly, but the grass should still be cut every two weeks, with a raised mowing height if necessary, to maintain your lawn's root health.
autumn & winter
September: The regular autumn rains make this a surprisingly good growing month, so a fortnightly mowing frequency is still highly recommended.
October & November: During these last two months of the season, the cut height should be increased to match slower growth and to keep moss under control. The last regular cut of the year will probably occur in November and Just a Mow's rotary mowers have the added benefit of sucking up autumn leaves!
Winter mowing. There is no reason to have an unkempt lawn for one third of the year! Because of the gentle Pembrokeshire climate, a light 'topping' cut is perfectly safe during the winter months so long as the soil is not waterlogged and no ground frost is expected within 24 hours.
weed control schedule
The broad spectrum, systemic, herbicides used by Just a Mow are safe, environmentally friendly, very effective and contain active ingredients that are not found in publicly available retail products. Common weeds such as daisies, buttercups and dandelions are usually able to be controlled with just one application. . . others, including yarrow, clovers and horsetail may need additional treatments.
Whilst these professional herbicides are usually applied during periods of vigorous growth such as the spring, summer & early autumn, the actual treatment schedule will be determined by the specific weed species being targeted.
holiday homes & cottages

caravan parks & camp sites
grassed public areas
Static & touring caravan parks and camping grounds all have extensive green areas in need of regular cutting, but that are almost always in use by guests, especially during the summer, when mowing is most needed!
These spaces are usually much too large for walk-behind mowers and too hazardous for tractor tows, so Just a Mow employ ride-aboard rotary mowers that provide ample area coverage, safe operation and have the added benefit of collecting their own cuttings, leaf debris and even litter. . . in a single pass.
Overgrown grassed areas can present a signigicant trip hazard and cause vehicle damage, especially if unstrimmed grass is allowed to conceal utility points, water hydrants and edge markers etc.

sports fields & facilities
The two most important aspects of grass cutting are height and frequency. Mowing is also important for weed control, so getting it right is critical. Turf grass, when cut too low, limits the leaf area available for photosynthesis and will inhibit growth, weaken the grass and increase it's susceptibility to weed invasion, disease and injury from drought or summer heat.
Higher mowing heights encourage deeper roots and an overall healthier turf with an increased ability to acquire water and nutrients. This, in turn, allows the grass to recover faster and makes overall turf maintenance easier.
For Rugby fields, Just a Mow aim to maintain a grass height of at least 50mm throughout the season, as you can still expect growth until December, with enough leaf area left available for food production. In addition to leaf area, a direct relationship exists between the height of turfgrass and the total mass of the root system.
If the weather was to stay mild into the new year, you may get a little growth in January, but the first ground frosts tend to stop most. Just a Mow always recommend that the last cut of the year should be accompanied by a low-nitrogen feed, so long as frost is not expected in the short term.
