We're currently experiencing an uncharacteristically wet summer due to the La Niña weather cycle bringing increased rainfall and damp conditions.
This has encouraged faster growth rates and soft ground, preventing us from transporting heavy machinery onto land without damaging it.
Also, with the COVID-19 pandemic requiring that staff isolate and recover as needed, we're also sometimes working with fewer staff with a higher demand than usual.
Staff are currently mowing sites which require mowing again only 5 days later. Many of these sites are generally on a schedule or two weeks or more depending on the site. This means grass is growing 3 times faster than it usually does resulting in double to triple the time to cut due to the height and moisture of the grass regardless of the machinery used.
