One thing for certain is that the last cut is never at the same time in Edinburgh as it is in Newquay, and it will be different everywhere in between.The increased showers of rain during September made for good growing conditions and many will have noticed the lawn needing mowed more frequently.Now during October as it the temperature beings to drop, the grass growth has slowed. This means we are nearing the last cut of the year, so it’s time to raise the cutting height of your mower.During the colder months we are really aiming to simply top the lawn or in other words just trim the blades and keep it tidy.
