8 lawn mowing tips Keep your
lawn clean and green
Cutting grass is an art. Proper mowing increases the density of the lawn,
which in turn decreases weeds. Usually it’s the best practice to rely on
landscaping companies for grass cutting services but you can also give it
a try for fun and a good workout.
Here are 8 useful tips for mowing your lawn and keeping your turf
Dry grass - Mow your grass on a day when the weather and grass are
dry. It makes the cutting easy and quick.
Well maintained mower - Make sure the blades of your mower are
sharp and balanced. This will allow you to avoid uneven results,
including random patches of high grass.
Weeding - Start with pulling out the weeds first. It keeps your grass
Mow first - Most lawn care companies recommend that it’s a good
practice to mow first, then trim the grass. Although you can do it the
other way around, this way you reduce time spent on trimming. Make
sure to pick up any sticks and rocks that may have fallen in your yard.
This avoids damaging the blades of the mower as well as a possible
aerial attack on cars, houses or innocent bystanders.
Mulching is good - Leave the trimmed and dry grass in the lawn. This
helps the nutrients and nitrogen to get absorbed in the ground. Use a
mulching mower for this.
Avoid scalping - Never cut the grass too short. Landscaping companies
advise to cut cool-season grasses to 2½ to 3½ inches and warm-season
grass to 1 to 3 inches. But avoid removing more than 1/3 of the grass
blade length at any one time.
Change mowing pattern regularly - As the grass grows, it tends to lean in
the direction you mow. Alternate the pattern every time, so it grows
straighter and healthier.
Mowing new grass - Newly-seeded grass needs 3 to 4 weeks to get
established before you mow it for the first time. The grass blades are
tender and can be easily damaged, especially if the soil is moist. Mow
when the new grass is 3/4 inch to 1 inch taller than its recommended
regular mowing height.
Regular fertilizing - It’s a good practice to fertilize the grass after
mowing. Every turf grass has its own fertilizing time which varies from 3
to 5 weeks. You can coincide the mowing and fertilizing day accordingly.
Hope these tips will help you keep your lawn green and clean. It’s always
good to be involved with your garden and take care of your plants. They
bloom when you interact and care for them. Mowing your land is a good
way to inspect your lawn and keep it beautiful.
