It is Good For Your Grass
This is one of the key elements you need to master when trying to keep a healthy and lush lawn. Every time we cut your grass it encourages it to grow quicker and thicker. Eventually leaving you with a luxuriant look. Added to this, regular mowing will block out those pesky weeds and will make your grass more durable. It is however crucial that this is done by a professional as they will know exactly what length to cut it. This will allow your lawn to grow at its optimal rate while saving you loads of time and money.
Wet Is Not Best
Many of our clients ask us why we do not cut their grass when it is wet. The simple fact is that wet grass does not allow for as clean-cut as dry grass. This is because the blades of grass do not stand upright due to the weight of the moisture in the blade. This can cause large clippings to clump together and eventually this could block up your mower's deck. An easy test to check this would be to walk through your lawn with shoes on. If blades of grass stick to them, the grass is still too wet. For more insider tips like these, call us right away.
Mix It Up A Little
As mentioned earlier, mowing a lawn is not as simple as one may think. It is important to change your mowing pattern every single time the lawn is cut. Believe it or not, your lawn is smart enough to know the difference. Changing the pattern will give you a more upright facing blade of grass. This will alternate the grain base of your lawn so that it does not just follow one pattern. It will also help prevent any rutting or rough spots that may develop. Now that you see lawn mowing is slightly more nuanced than you may have thought, let the experts handle it.
How Often Should You Mow?
This is a question that requires us to understand a couple of variables when it comes to your lawn. Most lawns need a regular mow at least once per week. However some may require more attention than others, and others may require less. Our landscape experts will generally suggest that you only cut about a third of the blade as any more will just do more harm than good. We also need to consider the type of grass.
