From a quarter-acre to twenty acres, Rochester Lawn Care uses specialized propane powered mowers with 52” to 61” decks to cut the turf at a specified height to provide a beautiful, well-maintained turf area.
Turf is normally cut at a height of 3” during the normal growing season with the last cut in the fall done at 2” to prepare the turf for winter. Mower height can be raised for certain drought conditions or lowered for a specific purpose or appearance.
