The year 2020 who would’ve knew what was to become, calling it ‘The Greatest Halt’ of all time in history known to mankind. It took a man made virus to close our planet down. Everything man made stopped for the month of April 2020 here in New Zealand, everything but grass and weeds.
Amongst the lockdown I would often look out at my lawn, I practically watched the grass grow inches in one month. I didn’t hear from my Lawn mowing company and I wondered if would have to cut the lawn myself come level 3, which ultimately I did.
Just a bit of lawn mowing around where we tend to walk, given the fact there are square concrete pads to step on to, the grass was gradually covering the concrete path. My suggestion to myself was to out there myself while the weather is dry and do some weeding and pruning for my own enjoyment and self care. Better still get the kids out there to help out too.
A little bit of weed spraying, weed eating around trees and boundary and fence lines, sweeping the driveway of dead leaves, and do it yourself lawn mowing, Im a bit tragic with all of the above, even though the benefits of making a connection with mother earth, its only a oncer in a blue moon i would do this.
The day the lawn mowing company came to my home to mow the lawns was a sight for sore eyes, took all of a good hour to mow. They finished up and drove off. I went outside to see cut lawns but it was a mess , long cut grass everywhere. In my pot plants on the deck, splashed up the wall and even in side. Somehow the grass managed to make it inside my home.
So what would I look for in a Residential Lawn and Garden company?
