Are you looking for advice on how to keep your lawn in good shape during dry conditions - or wet weather?

As garden machinery suppliers to gardeners, groundskeepers, and landscapers, we understand that maintaining a lush and healthy lawn can be a challenge, especially during periods of dry weather (believe it or not we have had some dry spells this summer!).

A reliable solution to tackle this issue is investing in high-quality petrol lawnmowers and other petrol garden machinery. In this blog post, we will explore the benefits of using petrol mowers and petrol lawn tractors, highlighting their efficiency, durability, and the range of services we offer, including lawnmower repairs.

Let's dive into the world of petrol-powered garden machinery and discover how it can help maintain your lawn during the dry weather.

But first, here are a few tips to help you maintain a lawn in dry weather:

As you may have noticed, the beginning of the season - in May has seen considerably less rainfall than previous years and this trend continued into July - in most parts of the UK. Grass needs water to survive. And watering your lawn, even if you're on a water meter, is much less problematic than reseeding bare patches or having to replace a lawn. So here are a few pointers that can help:

  • Water your lawn either early morning or late evening, so that the water doesn’t evaporate in the heat of the day. If you’re concerned about the amount of water you’re using, areas of the lawn that need the most water are:
    • Areas exposed to full sunshine (shaded areas can be watered less often)
    • Very sandy soils suffer the most (water leaches through sandy soils much quicker than heavier 'clay soils')
  • Spend more time watering any dry patches 
  • Newly turfed or seeded lawns need extra watering attention

Efficiency and Power with Petrol Mowers

When it comes to taming dry lawns, petrol mowers are unrivaled in their performance and efficiency.

Unlike their electric counterparts, petrol lawn mowers provide the necessary power to handle tough grass and handle larger lawn areas. The key advantage lies in their sturdy engines, which ensure a consistent cutting performance without power cords or relying on battery life. With our wide selection of petrol mowers, you can find the perfect match for your lawn size and terrain, ensuring a precise and effortless mowing experience.

Durability and Reliability of Petrol Lawn Tractors

For larger lawns and professional landscaping projects, petrol lawn tractors are the ultimate tool to conquer the dry weather.

These robust machines are specifically designed to handle extensive areas with ease, boasting powerful engines and wide cutting decks. With their enhanced maneuverability and ability to navigate diverse terrains, petrol lawn tractors become invaluable allies in maintaining large lawns during dry spells. Our range of petrol lawn tractors showcases top-quality brands known for their durability and long-lasting performance, ensuring you receive nothing but the best for your landscaping needs.
