Professional Lawn Mowing Services


Moonlight Technologies offer lawn mowing, grass trimming and grass cutting services to your precious lawns, making them look good.

Luxury grade lawns are cut with cylinder mowers as they can give an excellent even cut. Cylinder mowers have a cylinder that has a number of blades that spiral around it. As the cylinder rotates the grass blades are forced between the spinning cylinder blades and fixed straight cutting blade. This gives a 'scissor like' cutting action and the cut will be of very good quality.

The number of blades that spiral around the cylinder determine the quality of the mowing finish. The more blades the better the cut. Some cylinder mowers come with about 5-6 blades and these are suited to a utility grade lawn. Cylinder mowers with around 10-12 blades are used on ornamental luxury lawns and provide the best finish.

The width of the cylinder can vary, a wider cylinder will mean less trips back and forth when mowing but this must be balanced against how easy the lawn mower is to manouvre. A wider cylinder will make the machine bulkier and heavier and so turning corners will be more difficult.

Some cylinder mowers are entirely hand driven whereas others may have the blades driven by a power sources such as petrol or electricity. Self propelled cylinder mowers use a power source to propel themselves forward as well as to turn the blades. 

A cylinder mower with a rear roller will give the best 'striped effect'. Cylinder mowers usually come with a grass box that attaches to the machine and collects the grass clippings as you mow which can save the job of raking up the clippings.
