Lawn Mowing tips

Make sure the mower blade is very sharp. "A dull blade leaves grass looking ragged and encourages disease or lawn problems," Set the mower level higher. "Most people set their lawn mowers way too short," .

Too close a cut damages the grass, encourages weed growth and calls for too-frequent mowing. It's never about how short the grass is but how neat and trim the lawn looks when finished. Grass varieties grown in cooler climes should be 3 inches long or longer; warm-climate grasses, such as Bermuda and centipede grasses, can be cut a bit shorter, to around 1 1/2 inches.

Let your mower "design" the yard. Once you start the mower rolling, do not back up or make, "turns so tight they require slowing down." When you finish, look around for any areas of uncut grass. "The trick is to eliminate the little corners, peninsulas and island of grass," "Those patches are time-waster areas." What to do then? Don't mow those patches; replace with ground covers or mulch.

Start mowing in the most visible area of the property, like the front lawn. The most efficient way is to mow is to choose a specific area and mow in a circular motion from the edges toward the center. Mowing back and forth in rows is also acceptable.

Let no single bush or tree be an island in your yard. If there's something planted in the middle of the lawn that makes mowing hard, like a large bush with overarching branches, We recommend ripping out the grass under the bush. Create a garden bed or plant some more bushes. Use mulch to create a large, even shape that's easy to mow around. "Don't drop plants into your yard".

Be aware of your terrain, especially any steep slopes. These are areas that can cause accidents. People have lost toes by mowing the wrong way. Where the ground goes downhill, mow back and forth across the grade.

  1. I'd like to add a trick to the list that I recently read about in another gardening blog. In order to achieve even better results and a more efficient lawn mowing, local experts from Melbourne recommend to change the mowing pattern as often as you can. For example, you once go using the classic linear scheme (rows) and next time apply a spiral technique instead. This will improve your lawn's health, too.

  2. For weed eaters with strings, regularly replace the strings, or whenever it thins out or breaks. Be careful in restringing. Thread the string properly and make sure that the length of the string is adequate. see post
