Well Kept Lawn

Maintain a Healthy, Vibrant Yard
with Lawn Mowing

The secret to a healthy, beautiful lawn is regular mowing. By mowing your lawn on a consistent basis, you not only maintain your home's curb appeal but also ensure the health of your grass. Read below to learn more about regular lawn mowing and tips on how to properly mow your grass so you can maintain a well-manicured lawn all year long:


How Often Should I Mow My Lawn?

Usually mowing once a week is sufficient. However, when lawns grow more rapidly, you may need to mow more often to avoid cutting off more than 1/3 of the length of the grass blades.

How High Should I Mow?

Using one of the higher settings on your mower will give the best results. You should never cut off more than 1/3 of the length of the grass blades in a single mowing. This ensures that you don't scalp the lawn.

Recommended Mowing Heights:

  • Fescue, 1 1/2" - 2 1/2"
  • Bluegrass, 1 1/2" - 2 1/2"
  • Ryegrass, 1 1/2" - 2 1/2"
  • Bermuda, 1/2" - 2"

Other Tips

Keeping the mower blade is very important. A dull blade tears the end of the grass blades, causing it to turn brown later. This type of grass blade damage contributes to the spread of fungus.

Mow in a different direction each time you mow to avoid ruts in the lawn. This also prevents the grass from leaning to one direction.

Avoid mowing your lawn while it's wet, as this can invite fungus into your yard. It can also give your lawn an uneven cut.
