It’s official… spring has finally arrived in Minneapolis and this means you will start to see lawn mowing crews pulling their trailers on highways and city streets near you. In today’s blog, we are going to talk a bit about ways you can keep your dedicated lawn mower looking forward to mowing your lawn.
First Mow of the Season
If you’re a new customer, the first mow of the season is the best time to try and meet your lawn mower to go over the quirks of your lawn such as boundaries, special instructions or to let them know of any hidden pipes that may be sticking up out of the ground. This meeting ensures that your lawn mower will know what expectation you have of them throughout the year and will result in a relationship where everybody is happy.
If you’re not able to meet your lawn mower when they arrive at your property, you may want to consider marketing items in your lawn with flags. Be sure to leave a note with the office so they can include it on the job details so your lawn mower knows what the markers mean and can remove the markers for you after they mow your lawn.
How Weather Effects the Schedule
Mother nature can be brutal on lawn mowers throughout the mowing season. Traditionally, our lawn mowers at Peter Doran Lawn like to stay on a schedule and mow your lawn on the same day each week. However, mother nature can throw weeks at us where rain keeps us from being able to stay on schedule. If it does rain during the week, your lawn may end up getting mowed a day later or at a later time of the day if your lawn mower is working hard to catch up throughout the week.
Heat also plays a role in how much your lawns your lawn mower can mow during a week. On those really hot days, heat exhaustion can set in and you may want to keep an eye on your lawn mower if you are around the house while the mow your lawn. Additionally, since coolers only keep things cold for so long, you can earn “brownie points” from your lawn mower by offering them a cold cup of water or lemonade!
As the lawn mowing season gets into full swing, we look forward to servicing you and your lawn in the most professional way possible.
