Solutions to mow your lawn less

Is your lawn getting ahead of you this Spring? Are you looking for solutions to mow your lawn less?

Well we have TWO ideas that will give you less time behind the mower and more time to do whatever else you choose!

1. Primo Maxx Plant Growth Regulator

Plant Growth Regulators are a great way to reduce your mowing, while increasing the look and feel of your lawn. It is already widely used in commercial applications such as on golf courses and sports grounds to help keep these prestigious lawns looking stadium quality. 

Now available to the residential market as Primo Maxx, you can have Wimbledon quality lawn in your backyard, without having to mow everyday!

Plant Growth Regulators such as Primo Maxx influence plant hormone production in order to manipulate growth and development of specific parts of your lawn. Once absorbed, the active ingredient works to temporarily block the plant’s ability to produce a growth hormone called Gibberellic Acid. This suppresses the plant’s vertical growth while allowing normal processes like photosynthesis and respiration to continue.

Energy is diverted into the plant’s lateral growth, resulting in smaller and finer leaves, increased tillering, and a larger, deeper root mass. This results in the turf  becoming denser with a more vibrant colour.

Promotes denser, healthier turf that is better able to withstand a variety of stresses including heat, drought, diseases and traffic.

Slows the production of gibberellic acid, a plant hormone that promotes cell elongation. Vertical shoot growth is slowed, while lateral and below-ground growth of rhizomes, stolons, tillers and roots is stimulated.

Cuts mowing in half, reduces seed head production, fertilizer use, watering and clipping yield,  makes lawns look great with half the work or for less than 3 cents a square meter
