Taking Care Of Your Lawn This Summer With Our Hayter Lawn Mowers & More

We at Balmers GM are exceedingly happy that June has finally arrived. This means only one thing. Summer is just around the corner! This summer, we have plenty to look forward to. Sitting outside in the warm sun for hours upon end with your family and friends, enjoying a month of exciting World Cup action, the list is endless. One of the most important things to do this summer is to carry out all the necessary garden work so you have a garden to be proud of. By specialising in domestic turf care machinery, we guarantee that we have everything you could possibly need to maintain a healthy looking garden that is more than pleasing to the eye. Whether you’re interested in our range of Hayter lawn mowers or if you’re looking for the perfect Stihl strimmer, we are sure to supply everything you could possibly need for the perfect garden.

Mowing your lawn regularly is incredibly important during the summer months. Although regular mowing is a must, several other factors are equally as important. One of the biggest questions asked is ‘shall I mow my lawn wet or wait for a dry lawn’. It is always a good idea to cut your lawn when dry. This is for a number of reasons including maintaining a high standard of quality for your lawn mower. If you were to cut your grass when wet, this could block your lawn mower up which could potentially damage your machine. If you find your grass has grown too long, you can use a Stihl strimmer for example to trim down the length of your grass before mowing. Another common enquiry of lawn care during summer is regarding grass clippings and how to deal with them. The answer is simple. Simply mulch the clippings and return to the lawn. By doing so, your lawn has access to all important nutrients that the clippings are full of. This ensures a healthy feed for your lawn which ultimately allows for a healthy grow. The collection of your grass clippings should only take place if your lawn is diseased to prevent contamination or if the clippings are too long.

All of the domestic mowers that we supply such as our Hayter lawn mowers are up to any given task, with no job being too big or too small. If you would like more information or even a price for any of our Hayter lawn mowers, simply get in touch. 

Find Yourself The Perfect Stihl Strimmer This Summer

Strimming, when compared to lawn mowing, is often disregarded as a non-important summer gardening task. In actual fact, strimming is as important, if not more. Strimming allows you to reach the areas of your garden that could be considered tricky or impractical with a mower. Some people would even use a strimmer for their full garden if small enough. By carrying out regular strimming alongside regular mowing, you can be safe in the knowledge that all areas of your garden have received an all-important cut.

We currently have an offer where our customers can save up to 20% off selected Stihl products, including strimmers, which is ideal for those trying to find themselves the perfect Stihl strimmer for the summer ahead.

For help on finding you a Stihl strimmer, or if you would like more information regarding our range of Hayter lawn mowers or any other of our fantastic domestic products, please don’t hesitate to get in touch by checking out our website, giving us a call or even by visiting us in store.
