Before You Start: Make Sure You and Your Field are Ready to Brush Mow
1. In some cases you may be using your field and brush mower to mow an area that’s a mixture of brush and invasive plants that you want to get rid of, along with native and ornamental plants that you would like to keep. In such cases it can be a good idea to walk through the area and make note of what you need to cut and what you want to keep.

The following brush cutting tips will save you time, energy, and hopefully the budget for your brush removal projects.
Brush Cutting Tip #1: Dress for Safety & Comfort. Be sure to dress for the weather while wearing as little loose clothing as possible. It’s also a good idea to wear brightly-colored clothing to make yourself visible to others.

The Basics of Mulch and Mulching
Mulch is material that is spread around or over a plant in order to enrich the surrounding soil. Thus when we mulch a given plant or area with a professional mulcher mower, we are applying that material to that plant or area. Even when we are using a brush cutter such as Orec’s Cyclone Walk Behind Flail Brush Mower that cuts grass into clippings, we are mulching the area with those grass clippings. It is often said that mulching is integral to keeping your yard and the plants therein healthy, but why exactly is this the case?
Different Types of Mulching Materials
Mulch material can be either organic or inorganic. Inorganic mulches include gravel, plastic sheets and landscape cloths. Organic mulches can be such materials as leaves, hay and straw, pine needles and grass clippings. In general, Organic mulches may give your lawn or garden a more natural look [...]
Comments Off on Use a Brush Cutter to Organically Clear Crabgrass
Q: What Organic Methods Can I Use to Control Crabgrass? Crabgrass or Digitaria is a warm season annual that reproduces by seed. The two types of crabgrass that are commonly found are large crabgrass and smooth crabgrass. Large crabgrass has blue-green leaves and can grow up to 3 feet in height. In contrast, smooth crabgrass features leaves with a purplish tinge and will grow to no more than 15 inches. Although they may look quite different, both species of crabgrass can be quite aggressive and can easily take over a lawn, especially in hot, dry conditions. If you want to get rid of Crabgrass before it takes over, and you don’t want to use chemicals, a walk behind brush cutter may be the perfect option.
While pre-emergent herbicides (herbicides that kill weeds before their seeds emerge) are the most common way of killing crabgrass, many people prefer to use more organic means of [...]
