Believe it or not, the way you cut your grass affects grass health, growth and general appearance.
If you follow the rules described below, you'll help your lawn get the most out of the nutrients we supply during our applications.
If you don't, the mowing could actually cause your grass to turn yellow and even develop diseases.
Mow every 5 to 7 days. If you see your lawn growing too quickly, you can mow as needed
Ideally, your grass should be around 4 inches high. It's OK to cut it at 3 inches, but anything less will undermine the health of your lawn.
The blades on your mower, should always be sharp.
If you cut your grass with dull blades you will cause the tip to turn yellow and weaken the grass. Weak grass is way more susceptible to disease.
Don't mow when it's more than 85°F. Heat affects plants the same way it affects humans.
Don't mow when grass is wet. Clippings tend to clump and are a hassle to clean up.
Always remove or mulch clippings to avoid suffocating grass plants.
