Jim’s Mowing Number 12

Every garden needs a cool green lawn. Whether it is a place to relax and play with the whole family, or to help the environment by preventing erosion, oxygenating the air or reducing the heat of the surrounding areas.

When choosing the best lawn variety for your garden, you need to consider a number of factors including:

  • How much sun or shade it will receive.
  • What it will be used for? Sports, recreation or just to look good.
  • What level of maintenance will be available or required to keep it in good condition? Will you do it yourself or do you need to get a professional like Jim’s Mowing to do it for you.

In Perth the best low maintenance lawn types for shady areas with less than 6 hours of full sun are the buffalo varieties “Palmetto’ and ‘Sir Walter’. For full sun areas the couch varieties ‘Wintergreen’ and ‘Greenlees Park’ are best for high wear and use. Kikuyu is only suitable for higher maintenance lawns and Zoysia varieties are better for lower maintenance due to their slower growth and drought tolerance.
