Mowing Your Lawn
Lawns in United States cover 25 million acres according the EPA. These lawns will vary in height, density, and color among others. Maintaining your ideal lawn will require you to perform a number of important steps. A healthy and green lawn is no easy task.
Part of maintaining a healthy lawn includes regular mowing. Mowing your lawn weekly or bi-weekly at the very least will help to decrease infectious parasites and weeds. A well mowed lawn will also add to your curb appeal.
Different types of grasses will require you to adjust your lawn mower to different heights. If you are cutting a warm-season grass, you will want to cut your grass to a height of about 1/2 to 1 inch tall. If you are cutting a cool-season grass such as bluegrass you will want your lawn to be about 2 to 3 inches high.
Before you begin mowing pick up any loose objects that could get caught in the lawnmower blades. When you are ready, proceed to mow your lawn in a back and forth pattern, overlapping the area that you have already mowed. For best results mow your yard early after the dew has dried.
Ideally one third of new growth will be trimmed at any given time. Mow high and avoid scalping your grass to achieve this.
