One of the keys to maintaining a good-looking lawn is in the Lawn Mowing Burns Beach. Mower height, sharpness, cleanliness, and mowing agenda can make the difference between a lush green lawn and a brown weed infested one.
Make sure your mower is clean of weeds and other contaminants prior to cutting your lawn. Most lawn varieties need weekly mowing during the growing season. Letting your lawn get too tall between mowing, can cause damage. In general, it is not recommended to mow off more than 1/3 of the blade height. Warm season varieties do not require mowing during the winter months if they have gone dormant.
If you get behind on the mowing and the turf grows much higher than desired gradually lower the height of cut over a couple of mowings. Think of returning clippings as providing free food, supplying nitrogen, phosphorus and some potassium.
