“How to” for Lawns – MowingWritten by Brad Slade
How often you mow your lawn will depend on a number of factors. Firstly how much time you have to devote to your lawn’s maintenance. How fast your lawn grows, and this in turn will depend on whether you fertilise it regularly and whether it receives adequate water and sunlight. Normally, lawns should be mowed at least one a fortnight to keep them in check, so to speak.
One of worst things you can do for a lawn and a big misconception is that you can or should mow your lawn very short in order to reduce number of times you have to mow it. Grass generally will do much better when mowed at a higher setting. This is especially case in summer months, where short grass can often be burnt by sun otherwise. It is suggested that you should never be cutting or trimming off more than 1/3 of length of grass in a mowing session. If you have let your lawn go and it is far too long, it is recommended that you firstly mow it at a longer cut and then remow it at a slightly lower setting. If it is still too long, then you can go over it again in a couple of days time. Although this is time consuming it is preferred method for caring for your lawn. Needless to say like having your hair cut, you should maintain your equipment. In this case make sure your mower blades are sharp and in good condition. Remove any stone or other obstructions from lawn before mowing to avoid any damage to mower or lawn.
