Proper mowing practices will help you achieve optimal results from our lawn fertilization program. Grass blades convert sunlight to food and energy. Maintaining these grass blades correctly will help you have a healthy lawn.
Mowing Height
We recommend mowing so that 3 inches of grass remains AFTER cutting. Although some homeowners may consider this height excessive, this is the optimum height to maintain a healthy lawn. Consider some of the benefits of a proper mowing height:
• Encourages more, and deeper, roots.
• Keeps some weed seeds shaded so they will not germinate.
• Gives your lawn a greener and thicker appearance.
• Reduces water runoff from your lawn.
• Will reduce, or eliminate, scalped areas in the lawn.
• Provides greater resistance to disease and insect pests.
How often should I  mow my lawn?
Mowing frequency should depend on the growth rate of the grass plants, not by the calendar. To keep your lawn looking its best, only remove about one-third of the grass blade each time you mow. If you are maintaining your lawn at a 3 inch height, then the grass can be allowed to grow to 4 inches before it needs to be mowed. Mowing frequency is actually reduced when maintaining your turf at the proper height of 3 inches.
Lawn Mower Blades
Making sure your lawn mower blade is sharp is probably the most important component of proper mowing. Ideally, mower blades should be sharpened once a month. At a minimum, the blades should be sharpened twice per season. Most lawn maintenance professionals sharpen their blades every day! Dull blades can encourage disease problems, will leave leaf tips discolored, and will require more fuel per cutting.
Grass Clippings
Whenever possible, grass clippings should be allowed to fall back onto the lawn. If clippings are visible 5 or 6 days after mowing you should increase mowing frequency. Grass clippings are composed of approximately 85% water. Short clippings will quickly decompose and release nutrients back into the soil.
