Lawn Mowing Tips

How often should I mow?

The lawn should be mowed frequently so that only a small clipping is taken from the grass plant.

What is the proper height for mowing?

To ensure the health and vitality of your lawn, it's crucial never to remove more than 1/3 of the total grass blade length during mowing. Cutting off too much at once can severely stress the grass, leading to a weakened lawn that's more susceptible to disease and pests. This is because the growth of a grass plant's root system is directly proportional to the length of its above-ground parts.

Consequently, a longer cutting height encourages the development of a stronger, more robust root system, which is essential for the overall health of the grass. Maintaining a longer grass length, especially in the hot summer months, is ideal. Shorter grass is more vulnerable to the damaging effects of heat stress, which can lead to a dry, discolored lawn.

By adhering to these guidelines, you can promote a lush, resilient lawn that can better withstand the challenges of varying weather conditions and environmental stresses.
