Here are some tips on how to mow your lawn will help you get a lawn that is greener and free of weeds.
When it comes to taking care of your lawn, there is a wealth of information that you should keep in mind at all times.
If you are just beginning your journey as a rookie in the world of lawn care, then you will want to make sure that you keep the following recommendations in mind:
Mowing the grass is one of the most fundamental tasks involved in maintaining a beautiful lawn, but it is also one of the most vital. Mowing the grass on a regular basis is something that should be done by both homeowners and contractors. Regular mowing stimulates the formation of turf runners that can spread laterally (certainly in the case of warm season grasses). If you mow your lawn on a regular basis, the turf grasses will grow into a thick and dense lawn, making it more difficult for weeds to germinate and grow.
If you want to improve the density of your lawn using Cool Season grasses like rye grass and fescue, for example, you can do so by oversowing the lawn with rye grass seed or fescue seed.
The height at which a lawn is mowed is one of the most important factors determining the quality of the lawn. The height at which you should mow the lawn will change from one season to the next as well as according to the variety of grass that is growing there. Mowing heights of at least 50 mm (2 inches) are recommended for all grasses that grow throughout the cool season.
In general, warm-season grasses can be cut at a height of 25 millimeters (one inch) throughout the summer months; however, during the winter months, it is recommended to allow the grass to grow longer so that there is more surface area for the grass to photosynthesise during the periods of shorter daylight. You can keep the grass’s green color for a longer period of time in the winter if you raise the cutting height.
