Mowing your lawn during the spring growing season is an incredibly important aspect of lawn care that carries a number of benefits that improve its health and quality throughout the season. It’s important to know a few basics on how to mow your lawn properly, so we’ve compiled some tips for you about how to take good care of it.
You need to find a balance between grass that is too short and grass that is too long and maintain the length at that. Different types of grass have a recommended length, so make sure to check which range yours should fall in. There is however a rule that applies to cutting your grass in terms of length, and that is the “one third” rule. This is the rule that you should not be cutting more than one third of your grass away during a lawn mowing.
Remember to keep the blades of your mower sharp, clean cuts are important to maintain a clean and even cut across your lawn. If the blades are dull, you will tear the grass and cause a lot of damage to both the health and appearance of your lawn.
Well-kept lawns that are being cut regularly throughout the spring growing season will keep it strong. The healthy blades of grass will shoot up and overpower the weaker ones, creating a thicker, stronger lawn overall over time. You’ll notice even grass growth as well because keeping your lawn at a uniform level will allow nutrients to penetrate the soil evenly and help new grass to grow. You’ll also see a quick recovery in your lawn when faced with insect infestations or difficult weather due to its increased strength from regular cutting.
