In order to maintain well-kept hedges, tireless hours of pruning and clipping are essential. But who has the time to be a slave to their hedges? At St Ives Lawn Mowing we are proud to commit our time to keeping your hedges trimmed and in beautiful condition.

I have to say that over the years I have found Hedges give me the Greatest reward in seeing them trimmed correctly. whether its a Photinia, Verbenum, Lilly pilly or Laytens conifer I personally Love doing them. We come out, set up our portable scaffold and get them back in order. First in most cases we take out the bulk with our heavy machinery then we go back over the whole lot with various hand secateurs in order to give the straight cuts on the stems required for health of the plant. Finally we spray our natural antiseptic over the entire hedge to ensure the stabilizing of the plant after the shock of a cut, Finally we pour a tonic at the root base of each plant comprising the hedge and mulch out the base in if its heading into a colder season.

Managing weeds

At St Ives Lawn Mowing we keep abreast of domestic and rural weed management issues. We are able to advise our clients on ways to keep their properties weed free, be they lawns and gardens or larger rural acreage blocks. The information below is taken from Australian government and advisory authority factsheets and reports and summarises what we consider to be important aspects of weed issues.

Weeds are a serious problem throughout Australia. Many procedures and methods are available to manage the effects of weeds. The most effective means of weed control are prevention, early detection and eradication. In the event that weeds become established, procedures and methods for weed control are available to reduce their impact. Once the initial infestation is controlled, follow-up monitoring and control is required to ensure that reinfestation does not occur.

Call 1300 882 787 or email us to discuss your weed problems and how we can help you address them.

Weed prevention

Early detection and eradication

Biological control: Releasing a weed's native natural enemy such as insects, grazing animals or disease

Cultural control: Manipulating farming practices or enhancement of the native plant community

Physical control: Removal of weeds by mowing, mulching, tilling, burning, grazing or by hand

Chemical control: Use of chemicals, such as herbicides

Integrated weed management: Using a range of the above control measures

Ongoing maintenance

NSW State weed management arrangements

Who is responsible for managing weeds? The primary responsibility for managing weeds rests with landholders and land managers, but collective action is necessary where the problem is beyond the capacity of the individual landholder or land manager to address.

Successful weed management requires a coordinated national approach which involves all levels of government in establishing appropriate legislative, educational and coordination frameworks in partnership with industry, landholders and the community.
